Cedar Rapids police looking for information regarding a shooting on the city’s southwest side



Cedar Rapids, Iowa – Cedar Rapids Police were sent to the 2100 block of Bowling St. SW. on April 29th, 2022, at about 6:41 p.m., in response to a 911 call reporting shots fired.

Officers on the scene discovered shot casings in the surrounding area, as well as bullets that had struck the side of a local store.

According to initial reports, a black car and an SUV were engaged, with the occupants exchanging rounds between them. There were no reported injuries.

The police are asking anyone who may have information about this incident to come forward.

“We have too many instances of shots fired in our community going unsolved, and that’s largely driven by the fact that individuals who saw the incidents refuse to cooperate with investigators. These reckless, irresponsible acts directed at individuals are putting the public at risk and cannot be tolerated. We will continue using every resource at our disposal to successfully bring those responsible to justice, but the fact remains, we can’t be everywhere at once, and cooperation with police would result in a much safer community,” Chief Wayne Jerman said.

An investigation is underway.
