CEDAR RAPIDS — A Cedar Rapids man faces charges after a shots fired incident Tuesday afternoon.

Public safety spokesman Greg Buelow said Cedar Rapids police responded to a report of a shot fired at 5:50 p.m. Tuesday at 1814 Hamilton St. SW. Officers learned 24-year-old Marquon J. Clopton got out of a car, pointed a gun at two people and then fired a shot into the ground.

Buelow said Clopton was trying to intimidate a 41-year-old man and a 22-year-old woman.

Clopton was found at his residence at 2314 Vista Road about two hours after the incident, Buelow said. He was arrested and faces charges of going armed with intent, carrying weapons, domestic assault while displaying a weapon and intimidation with a deadly weapon.
