Dubuque Man Charged After Threatening To Shoot Girlfriend

A Dubuque man faces over a half dozen charges after he threatened to shoot his girlfriend and her roommate this past weekend. The incident took place inside Aitchison Hall on the University of Dubuque campus Saturday afternoon. 27 year old Demetrius Woods- McKissick faces eight charges ranging from intimidation with a dangerous weapon to domestic assault with strangulation. Court records say Woods-McKissick had held his girlfriend at his residence against her will during the early morning hours of Saturday and at some point choked her for about 10 to 15 seconds. She was able to leave after he passed out. Later Woods-McKissick went to her dorm room and threatened her and her roommate with a handgun. He then pushed his girlfriend and left the room. Police watched campus surveillance footage of Woods-McKissick going to the room with what appeared to be a handgun, and then leaving about ten minutes later.
