CEDAR RAPIDS — A man has been arrested in connection with the Friday shooting that killed a pregnant, 25-year-old woman and injured another woman in northwest Cedar Rapids.
Johnnie Osborne IV, 26, faces charges of first-degree murder, nonconsensual termination of a pregnancy, attempted murder and willful injury causing serious injury, according to police.
Asia Taqara Grice and another 25-year-old woman were shot around 4:40 a.m. at an apartment building at 1610 30th St. NW, police said.
Grice was pronounced dead at the scene, and the other woman was taken to a hospital with a non-life-threatening injury, police said.
Police said they quickly determined the shooting was intentional and identified Osborne as the suspect, arresting him at 7:19 a.m. outside a room at the Rodeway Inn, 4011 16th Ave. SW.
At 11 a.m., people were standing in small groups across the street from the apartment complex, where the entrance was marked with yellow crime-scene tape and guarded by two officers.
Some in the crowd were hugging and crying and talking quietly. They declined to comment.
