On Tuesday, August 18, 2015 at 2:37a.m., the Iowa City Police Department responded to 1946 Broadway St. Apt. #E for a report of shots fired.  Prior to the police arriving on scene, the caller reported the male suspect took off in an unknown direction.  Officers began checking the area, but were unable to locate the suspect, who was identified by the victim and a witness as:  Diamond Sincere Wilson, DOB: 05-14-87.

According to the victim and a witness, Wilson and the victim got into a verbal argument inside the residence.  During that argument, Wilson pulled out a black handgun, pointed it directly at the victim’s chest, and fired one shot.  The victim evaded the shot and was not injured.  Wilson then exited the residence and took off in an unknown direction.  Wilson is described as a light-skinned black male, 5’11”, 155 lbs., braided hair to his shoulders, wearing a white tee-shirt, tan cargo shorts, black shoes, and a black and grey Chicago hat.  He is known to reside at different locations in the Johnson County area. 

The Iowa City Police Department wishes to speak with Wilson and, at this point, he is believed to be armed and dangerous.  The Iowa City Police Department’s Investigation Unit was called in and is actively investigating this incident and charges are pending.  If Wilson is sighted, the public is discouraged from approaching him and encouraged to call 911. 

The Iowa City Police Department is seeking the public’s assistance in locating additional witnesses, evidence, or information about this incident.  The Iowa City Area CrimeStoppers is offering up to a $1000 cash reward for information leading to the arrest of this suspect(s).
