Dubuque Felon Sentenced To Prison

A Dubuque felon who police say shot a man multiple times following an altercation nearly two years ago has been sentenced to federal prison. Records from U.S. District Court in Cedar Rapids say 33 year old Jevonne Coleman was sentenced to nine years in prison earlier this month after he pled guilty to one count of possession of a firearm by a felon. Court documents say Coleman had gotten into a verbal altercation with a man on August 9th 2017. Later that day Coleman and a friend were sitting on a stoop on Locust Street when the man approached the two. Documents say Coleman’s friend then “cold cocked” the man who began to run away. Coleman chased the man, raised a gun and shot him multiple times. The man survived the attack. As police arrived Coleman hid the gun in a bush, before hiding himself in a bluff. Police were able to locate Coleman and place him under arrest. According to a preliminary breath test, Coleman’s blood alcohol content was .315 percent at the time of the incident. In addition to the prison sentence, Coleman will be placed on three years of probation once he is released.
