U.S. Attorney's Office, Southern District of Iowa

DAVENPORT, Iowa – A Davenport man, Davante Shamod Howard, age 24, was sentenced on Tuesday, October 18, 2022, to 46 months in prison for Felon in Possession of a Firearm, to be served consecutively to a 14-month sentence imposed upon the revocation of his supervised release in a previous federal firearms case. Following his imprisonment, Howard was ordered to serve three years of supervised release.

In September 2021, Howard had an active federal warrant for a supervised release violation. Law enforcement located Howard at a Davenport residence. Prior to his arrest, Howard had used a straw purchaser to acquire an extended rifle magazine. During a search of the residence, law enforcement located the extended magazine, as well as an AR-15 and a ghost Glock firearm. Law enforcement obtained a search warrant for Howard’s Snapchat account, which showed photos and videos of Howard with the rifle. In one video, Howard threatened to shoot people. Howard pleaded guilty on April 18, 2022.

United States Attorney Richard D. Westphal of the Southern District of Iowa made the announcement. The Davenport Police Department investigated the case.
