The Iowa City Housing Authority employee recently charged with acting as a lookout during a reported shooting at the Ecumenical Towers last month has been fired.

Mary Abboud-Kamps, 54, was terminated on March 15 from her position as the coordinator for the Family Self-sufficiency Program, said Iowa City personnel administrator Karen Jennings.

All other information related to the internal investigation is confidential, Jennings said.

Abboud-Kamps was charged with accessory to felony after her boyfriend, Stephen Clark Caldwell, 69, was charged with intimidation with a dangerous weapon after allegedly firing a handgun in the Ecumenical Towers on Feb. 21.

Police reports said that Abboud-Kamps lied in her interview, failing to tell police Caldwelll possessed a handgun with him when he walked her to her car following the incident.
