News

CEDAR RAPIDS, Iowa (AP) — Police in Cedar Rapids announced an arrest Tuesday in the December shooting death of an 18-year-old woman at an apartment complex.

Larenzo Laroy Burnett, 20, was arrested on suspicion of involuntary manslaughter and witness tampering in the fatal shooting of Marisa Doolin, of Cedar Rapids, police said in a news release Tuesday.

Authorities found Doolin in the apartment on Dec. 22 with a gunshot wound, and she died four days later in a hospital.

Police said Tuesday that investigators believe Burnett intentionally pointed a handgun at Doolin, but that the gun accidentally discharged. Investigators say Burnett also warned a witness not to talk to police about the shooting.
