A local man has pleaded guilty after opening fire in an Iowa City neighborhood.

Marqueese L. Hampton, 18, is the second man who allegedly opened fire in an Iowa City neighborhood last month. He has changed his plea to guilty and will be sentenced later this year.

Coralville resident O’Sean Horton also pleaded guilty, according to the Iowa Courts Records. 

The defendants allegedly fired numerous rounds at each other around 7.30 p.m. June 4 near the Pheasant Ridge Apartments, 2600 Roberts Road.

A nearby apartment complex was damaged by the gunfire, but there were no injuries reported in the shooting.

Hampton and Horton have been charged with carrying weapons, going armed with intent, intimidation with a dangerous weapon, and reckless use of a firearm.

Hampton faces additional charges for possession of a controlled substance and possession of contraband in a correctional institute. 

Officials at the Johnson County Jail reportedly found marijuana in Hampton’s anus, according to police records.

Hampton’s sentencing is scheduled for Sept. 22, and Horton’s is scheduled for Aug. 11.
