A Muscatine man is in custody following a Muscatine Police Department investigation involving a November 28, 2021, shooting on Park Avenue.
Mario Eduardo Madrigal, 23, 1501 1st Avenue, Muscatine, was arrested Wednesday (Dec. 15) and charged with two counts of intimidation with a dangerous weapon, and two counts of going armed with intent.
Officers of the Muscatine Police Department were alerted at approximately 02:42 a.m. on Nov. 18, 2021, about a possible shooting that had occurred at 1010 Park Ave. The complainant contacted police and reported that the vehicle he had been driving was struck four to five times by gun fire.
Officers examined the vehicle and discovered several bullet holes along the driver’s side. The complainant stated he and a friend had driven to the Park Avenue location to collect money from a second party. Once they arrived, the situation escalated into a physical confrontation, which involved several other subjects.

After an ongoing investigation into the incident, investigators of the Muscatine Police Department were able to identify the individual they believe to be responsible for the shooting and arrested Madrigal. The investigation into the incident is ongoing, however.
