IOWA CITY — Iowa City police are investigating a Sunday shooting as a homicide.
Police on Tuesday identified the shooting victim as Frederick W. Rumble, 45, of Iowa City. He was shot multiple times Sunday and taken to the University of Iowa Hospitals and Clinics, where he was pronounced dead.
Rumble was found after Iowa City police were called to area around Sandusky and Taylor drives — south of Highway 6 and west of Sycamore Street — around 1:20 a.m.
Officers found a vehicle, driven by Rumble, that had crashed into a tree in the 1300 block of Bancroft Drive.
An autopsy determined the manner of death to be homicide. Anyone with information on Rumble’s death is asked to contact Iowa City Area CrimeStoppers at iccrimestoppers.org. Tips can be left anonymously.
Rumble’s death is the third homicide in Iowa City this year and the second in a month.
Quincy Russom, 19, was shot and killed during a robbery at 615 S. Governor St., No. 6, around 7:53 p.m. Feb. 12. Sammy Imadeen Hamed, 22, a transient, is charged with first-degree murder in that death.
Criminal complaints accusing Winfield of first-degree murder say Winfield had been posing as a woman on a dating website and talking with Curry for months before arranging to meet him at the Meadow Lark Apartment Complex, 2400 Lakeside Dr.
Witnesses said a man approached Curry’s vehicle and started shooting. Information taken from Winfield’s cellphone connected him to Curry and the crime scene, police said.
