Cedar Rapids police investigate man's shooting as a homicide


CEDAR RAPIDS, Iowa — Cedar Rapids police say they are investigating the shooting death of a 32-year-old man last week as a homicide.

The man was identified Thursday as Bryan Ahmaad Edwards. Police say they have no verifiable address for him.

He was found suffering from a gunshot wound on the evening of Sept. 10 in northwest Cedar Rapids by officers responding to a call of a disturbance. He died in surgery at a local hospital.

A police department statement says investigators do not believe the shooting was a random act and they do not believe that there is a risk to the general public.
