Rush was originally charged with second-degree murder, willful injury causing serious injury, intimidation with a dangerous weapon, reckless use of a firearm causing serious injury and possession of a firearm as a felon.
Rush will also be charged with three counts of willful injury causing bodily injury, two additional counts of willful injury causing serious injury, three counts of reckless use of a firearm causing bodily injury and two additional counts of reckless use of a firearm causing serious injury, according to a news release from the Cedar Rapids Police Department.
