Police said a second arrest was made for a Jan. 1 shooting in Dubuque that left one person injured.

Katwan M. Brown, 26, of 366 Kaufmann Ave., was arrested at 4:30 p.m. Monday in the area of Main and Jones streets on charges of aiding and abetting an attempted murder and possession of a firearm by a felon.

The charge of aiding and abetting carries the same penalties as being charged with attempted murder.

Court documents state that Brown supplied the handgun used in the Jan. 1 shooting of Darrin D. Heard, 25, of 2109 Jackson St. Heard was taken by a private vehicle to UnityPoint Health-Finley Hospital with a gunshot wound to his abdomen.

Derrick D. Timmons, 28, no permanent address, was arrested earlier this month on charges of attempted murder, intimidation with a dangerous weapon, going armed with intent and possession of a firearm by a felon in connection with the case, according to a press release issued by Dubuque police at the time of his arrest.

Authorities said police responded to the 1100 block of Walnut Street at about 3:20 a.m. Jan. 1 after receiving reports of gunfire.

Officers located shell casings in the area and a “bullet impact mark” on the outside of the residence at 1105½ Walnut St. They also said they found a handgun behind 1030 Walnut St.

Officers said a person, later identified as Timmons, was seen running from the area. Timmons fled to 1395 Walnut St. and was arrested following the execution of a search warrant.

During the investigation, authorities reviewed traffic camera footage and observed Brown handing Timmons a firearm prior to the shooting, documents state. 

According to court documents, Brown is a convicted felon and is prohibited from possessing firearms or ammunition.
