Hostile crowd caused slight delay in getting homicide victim medical attention

Date:

A fatal shooting outside a Des Moines bar killed 29-year-old Alonzo Kearney. Des Moines police say there was a large crowd in the parking lot, a fight broke out and someone shot and killed Kearney. Police say the scene was intense and chaotic when they responded just after midnight on Sunday. “With our priority of getting in there to get someone some help and not everybody went with the program to help us do that,” said Sgt. Paul Parizek of the Des Moines Police Department. There was a slight delay in clearing the scene for medics to safely treat Kearney. Officers performed CPR and medics began treatment soon after, but he later died in hospital. Parizek said the delay in medical care did not cost Kearney his life. The result would have been the same no matter how quickly they could treat him. Attention has now shifted to a suspect. Des Moines police say he ran off after killing Kearney. While they want justice for the family, they need more witnesses to come forward. “We know that some people are reluctant to come forward because they think we’ve already gotten that information to us, or because they’re concerned about their safety,” Parizek said. “There are things we can do to make sure they’re taken care of and they’re safe.” KCCI visited Zora today. We flagged down the owner of the bar in the parking lot, but he drove off. Police said Zora is cooperating with their investigation. Now police said they need the public to join their plea to stop the deadly violence. “We have to attack the mindset of the person who decides to bring a gun to the bar,” Parizek said. that evening, a birthday party is celebrated in Zora. The promoter of the party was Deron Wilson, the same promoter of an incident at Shag’s in September. Police say neither Wilson nor the birthday party led to Kearney’s death. They do have a message for promoters and bar owners. “There is nothing the event has done that has contributed to this. We encourage all bar owners and promoters to make sure that when they host events, they don’t create an environment where anything goes because there are criminals out there who will take advantage of that,” said Parizek. Wilson told KCCI he extends his condolences and prayers to the victim’s family. The police are confident that they will solve this murder investigation. Police are encouraging more witnesses who were in Zora that night to come forward.
