Few Leads and No Arrests a Year After Cedar Rapids Hotel Shooting
According to CBS2, it's been just over a year since a shooting at the Cedar Rapids Ramada by Wyndham Hotel left 6 people injured.
It happened during an advertised birthday party on October 1, 2021, and since then, authorities have had difficulty getting many witnesses to come forward with what they know. What some witnesses did say was that the party, which took place in a hotel conference room at 525 33rd Ave. SW, turned violent when at least one person fired shots, leaving at least one in serious condition. Three more victims later arrived at hospitals themselves. The youngest victim was just 13 years old.
Evidence later pointed to multiple firearms being used at the scene, but that was not confirmed.
This incident was considered one of the largest mass shootings in history. In April of 2022, three people were killed and two injured in a shooting incident at the Taboo Nightclub & Lounge in downtown Cedar Rapids. Suspects Timothy Rush and Dimione Jamal Walker were each arrested on a variety of charges in connection with that case.
Again, over one year later, no arrests have been made in the Ramda shooting, but authorities are asking anyone with information to come forward by calling the Cedar Rapids police department at 319-286-5491.
