Waterloo Shooter Sentenced

According to KWWL, a Waterloo man has been sentenced to 10 years in federal prison exactly one year after he injured two people in a shooting.

30-year-old Dai’Sean Battles was sentenced on Tuesday after pleading guilty for being a felon in possession of a firearm in the May 25, 2021 shooting.

A release from the US Attorney’s Office Northern District of Iowa states that Battles and his girlfriend were involved in an altercation with another person at a Waterloo home.

The injured victims were identified as 19-year-old Quinton Davis and 27-year-old Alexis Whitaker.

At Battles’ sentencing, a judge said that he presented an “extreme danger to the community.” Along with the 10-year sentence, Battles must also serve three-years of supervised release.
