UPDATE: 10/27/15
A witness tells TV-6 that he was in the Marine recruiting center when he heard shots fired at a nearby law office. He says he heard screaming and then heard the gunman try to reload his gun. A Marine recruiter told everyone to run. As the witness was running, he said he heard more gunfire. Kimberly Rd. was closed, but has since reopened to traffic.

Officials in Bettendorf have released the identity of the suspect involved in the active shooting incidents in Davenport and Bettendorf on Monday, as 40-year-old Robert L. Mayes II, of Coal Valley, Ill. Mayes died at the scene as a result of a self-inflicted gunshot wound to the head.

Officials go on to say that the locations where the shootings happened were related to an ongoing domestic issue with Mayes and his estranged wife. The motive for going to both locations was that he was looking for his wife at the Davenport location where she is employed and another male at the Bettendorf location where he is employed.
