A Coralville man was charged Sept. 28 after allegedly lying to police about the identity of a man involved in a shooting incident last month.

According to a Coralville police complaint, Shango Johnson, 22, was involved in a Sept. 2 fight in which he was accidentally shot by Tybell Brewer. The complaint said the two fled the scene together.

Johnson allegedly lied to investigators about the identity of Brewer during several police interviews. The complaint said this prevented officers from completing their investigation.

According to the complaint, officers later learned Johnson not only knew Brewer but the two are related.

Johnson is charged with willful injury — aiding and abetting, a Class-D felony punishable by up to 5 years in prison and a fine of $7,500.
