A second man has been arrested in connection with a shooting that occurred Sept. 25 in the 1600 block of Smith Street.
Calvon Desmond Miles, 27, 1321 N. Seventh St., was arrested shortly after 10 p.m. Sunday in the 1100 block of Spruce Street on charges of willful injury causing serious injury, a class C felony, and carrying weapons, an aggravated misdemeanor.
Miles allegedly shot Aaron Floyd "Tweek" Stanley, 20, 800 N. Third St., Oquawka, Illinois, in the leg Sept. 25 following an argument between the two, both of whom were seen carrying guns by witnesses shortly before the altercation.
Stanley, who was taken to Great River Medical Center in West Burlington for treatment of his wound following the incident, originally told detectives it was a white male who shot him.
Surveillance video obtained by detectives from homes in the area of the shooting, however, showed Stanley and a black male arguing and displaying guns.
"At one point, it appears the black male shoots Stanley in the leg and both eventually run from the scene," Melissa Smith, a detective with the Burlington Police Department's Criminal Investigations Division, wrote in an affidavit. "Upon viewing the video footage, officers recognized the black male subject as Calvon Miles."
Stanley, who was given a suspended sentence after pleading guilty to aggravated assault and carrying weapons in relation to the incident, initially refused to tell officers who it was that shot him, saying he feared for the safety of his family. He did, however, identify Miles as the shooter the next day, though he declined to give more information.
Detectives interviewed Alissa Patterson, who saw Miles the day of the shooting in the area of Musician's Pro Shop on Maple Street. Having known each other for about five years, the two started walking together.
Patterson told detectives Miles had asked her if "Tweek" had asked about him or mentioned him, to which she replied he had not.
The two continued walking toward the area of South Leebrick Street, and Patterson noticed the handle of a gun in Miles' pocket.
"She advised Miles was acting 'suspiciously,' was agitated and possibly high on something. Patterson asked Miles where he was going and he responded, 'Don't worry about it,'" court documents state.
The two parted ways near Leebrick Street. Minutes later, Patterson heard gunshots followed by sirens.
Miles is being held in the Des Moines County jail in lieu of a $25,000 cash only bond. He is ordered to next appear in court at 2 p.m. Nov. 29.
