Wisconsin Man Arrested for Attempted Murder In Dubuque Shooting
In an incident that occurred in Dubuque, a man named Kenneth M. Moore, 49 from Monroe, Wisconsin has been charged with attempted murder following an altercation in Dubuque.
According to police, the arrest took place on Wednesday, August 16th, just before 9pm in the 800 block of West Fifth Street, based on a warrant issued Tuesday. The incident initially unfolded on August 4th just after 4am when Dubuque police responded to a report of shots fired on Stafford Street. Upon arrival, officers discovered spent shell casings on the street and a broken window in a parked vehicle.
According to court documents, a witness reported observing Lance H. Hayes, aged 31 and from Dubuque, standing in the street with his arm extended after hearing a single gunshot. Hayes then reportedly fired multiple shots and sought refuge in a residence on Stafford Street. Law enforcement surrounded the residence, eventually locating Hayes at a different address with a handgun. However, it was revealed that Hayes was not the initial shooter.
The Investigation indicated that Moore had engaged in a dispute at the Stafford Street residence. He fired a gunshot towards the front porch during the altercation. Subsequent surveillance footage captured Moore and Hayes having a confrontation on the porch, which escalated to a shot being fired towards Hayes, narrowly missing the front door. Hayes then retrieved a handgun from the residence and fired multiple shots while exiting the porch. Hayes was arrested on the same day for unlawful possession of a firearm by a felon in connection with the incident.
The case underscores a series of events involving gunfire and altercations, with Moore facing charges of attempted murder and Hayes already in custody for firearm possession due to his status as a felon. The investigation continues as law enforcement seeks to piece together the sequence of events leading up to the confrontation.
