Cedar Rapids police: Dispute over man led to Thursday morning shooting

Jill Sodahl faces one count of attempted murder for a shooting that occurred Thursday morning

CEDAR RAPIDS — A dispute over a man allegedly led one Cedar Rapids woman to shoot another Thursday morning.

Jill Sodahl, 30, of 3630 12th Ave. SW faces one count of attempted murder for a shooting that occurred Thursday morning in the 3800 block of 20th Ave. SW. Cedar Rapids public safety spokesman Greg Buelow said police responded to the residence around 7:30 a.m. Thursday after the victim reported she had been shot by Sodahl.

The victims injures were not life threatening and the victim was not hospitalized. Buelow did not have information on how many times the victim was shot or where she suffered injuries.

The shooting appears to have stemmed over a “relationship with the same man,” Buelow said.

After the shooting, police received a report of someone throwing an object into the pond at Jones Park. Coincidentally, the fire department was doing water rescue training at the time and assisted police in retrieving a handgun believed to be used in the shooting.

Sodahl was identified as the suspect in the shooting, interviewed by police on Friday and arrested for attempted murder. Attempted murder is a Class B felony punishable by up to 25 years in prison.
