[ARCHIVED] Robbery Suspect Identified

On March 17th, 2014, at 10:11 p.m. Dubuque Police responded to the area of 2nd and Main Street on the report of a disturbance involving shots fired and a vehicle crash. Upon arrival officers met with a cab driver who reported being the victim of an armed robbery inside his cab, during which he discharged his legally carried firearm in self-defense. A second cab driver in the area attempted to intervene and stop the robbery by crashing his cab into the victim’s cab. After a brief struggle with the cab drivers, the suspect fled the area but was later (12:28 p.m. on March 18th) taken into custody by Dubuque Police. The suspect is identified as Shaun Caprice McCree, 08/03/78, of 7939 East Sweet Home Road, Apple River, IL. McCree is charged with 1st Degree Robbery, a Class B Felony punishable by up to 25 years in prison. He remains in the Dubuque County Jail awaiting his initial court appearance.

As with any criminal case, the charges filed are allegations and any suspects are presumed innocent until convicted in a court of law. Anyone with additional information is asked to contact the Dubuque Police Department at 563-589-4415.
