DAVENPORT, Iowa — Police have identified a 22-year-old Rock Island man as the second victim killed in riots last weekend in Davenport.
23-year-old Marquis M. Tousant, from Rock Island, Illinois, was pronounced dead at the scene Monday morning and publicly identified Wednesday afternoon.
Tousant's body was found after the shooting incident on Myrtle Street, where police responded to reports of a suspicious vehicle, before theirs was fired upon multiple times by a group, injuring the officer driving the car.
A handgun was found underneath Tousant's body, and he was identified to have been armed and a part of the group that erupted into violence at the Necker's jewelry store prior to the confrontation.
The investigation into the incident is ongoing by the DCI and the Scott County Sheriff’s Office.
