CORALVILLE — Police have arrested the alleged shooter in a December robbery that left one person with a gunshot wound.

According to Coralville police criminal complaints, 24-year-old Soloman J. Marshall, of Coralville accompanied Markez Fox, 21, and Artquon Kirksey, 19, to a residence in the 500 block of Seventh Avenue for “an arranged transaction” at about 1 a.m. Dec. 23.

Police say the men discussed a transaction, but it ultimately did not occur.

When the victim left the residence and got into a vehicle, Marshall allegedly walked up to him, pulled out a handgun and fired into the vehicle, hitting the victim in the arm and chest.

Police say Marshall, Fox and Kirksey then fled the scene.

Both Fox and Kirksey were arrested in January. Fox is being held in Muscatine County, while Kirksey is in custody in Washington County.

On Jan. 12, police issued an arrest warrant for Marshall, who was arrested and booked Wednesday in the Johnson County Jail.

Coralville police Lt. Deb Summers said Marshall, who had been out of town for several months, was identified in Coralville earlier this week.

With Marshall’s arrest, Summers said police are not seeking any other arrests in connection with the December robbery.


All three men face one count of first-degree robbery, a Class B felony punishable up to 25 years in prison.

Fox is scheduled for a July 10 jury trial, while Kirksey’s jury trial is scheduled for July 17, according to court documents.
