CLINTON — A Clinton man is facing two felony charges stemming from alleged reports of shots fired.

Dairramey C. Moore, 32, 101 18th Ave. North, No. C, is charged with intimidation with a dangerous weapon, injure/provoke fear, a Class C felony; going armed with intent, a Class D felony; and reckless use of a firearm, property damage, an aggravated misdemeanor. Defense attorney Neill Kroeger is appointed to represent Moore. A preliminary hearing is set for 8:30 a.m. May 22.

According to the affidavit, at 11:53 p.m. April 26, officers responded in reference to numerous reports of shots fired. Officers arrived and met with a male outside the residence. Officers cleared the house and found five other people located inside the residence. The officer spoke to the male and told him he was inside his house and noticed through surveillance cameras located on the outside of the house that Moore and another male were knocking at his back door. The male stated Moore was at his residence looking for a male he was upset with about a girl they both had been dating. The male said he did not let Moore into the residence.

The affidavit continues the male said Moore was standing outside the residence near a window and heard Moore yell everyone needed to get away or they were going to die. The male said he was right inside the house on the couch when Moore allegedly started shooting through the window. An officer noticed at least seven spent casings on the ground on the east side of the house. The officer noticed multiple holes in the window from the gunshots going into the residence. No one was injured from the shots fired into the house.

The affidavit states officers learned during the investigation the shooter was standing on the east side of the house and was shooting to the west into the house. Several of the rounds fired to the west traveling through the residence and entering a neighbor’s house. The neighboring house was occupied at the time of the shooting. The bullets traveled through the outside wall of the house and into the residence. The owner of the residence reported property damage to his residence caused by the bullets entering the house.

The affidavit states the surveillance system was collected from the male’s residence. Officers observed two males approach the back door of his residence at approximately 11:45 p.m. One male was wearing a hooded sweatshirt and pulled the hood down and was talking with a female outside the door. The male was identified as Moore. The female was seen leaving the house in a vehicle as Moore and the other male walked to the east of the house.

The affidavit continues that at 11:49 p.m. Moore and the other white male walked around to the east of the house. They were seen on video surveillance standing on the east side of the house. The unknown white male was seen walking to the north toward the alley and leaving the area, walking to the west in the alley at 11:50 p.m. A car is seen in the surveillance video about a minute later at 11:51 p.m. stopping in the alley facing to the east. The surveillance video showed Moore running from the east side of the house to the alley and running to the west. Moore did not enter the vehicle. The vehicle left traveling east.
