MASON CITY – A man has been sent to jail after a shooting this past December at a Mason City bar.

A spokesman with the Mason City police department tells NIT that 24-year-old Demarcus Jordan Bennett, unknown address, was a suspect after a shooting that took place December 23, 2018 at at Spike’s Bar. An arrest warrant was issued and he was charged with reckless use of a firearm. After a trial, he was later guilty of that crime and landed in jail for 15 days.

According to Mason City police, on December 23, 2018, at 1:55 AM, an altercation with gunshots fired was reported in front of Spike’s bar, 18 7th Street SE in Mason City. Several people were taken to the hospital and treated for injuries. Police didn’t say who was hurt or the extent of injuries.

No injuries were reported due to gunfire.

After the incident, a person at the scene told NIT:

“An ambulance was called to the Taco John’s parking lot for a person who was bleeding, he said he wasn’t shot, but he was banged up pretty bad and bleeding. Witnesses said three black males, one in a gray jump suit and two with dreds took off walking… Another witness said she saw them get into a vehicle maybe a silver Tahoe. Another vehicle pulled up to the emergency vehicle and said they were also a assault victim, and said that the guys were trying to shoot him in the back. Two females were taken to the hospital (I think the cops drove them, instead of by ambulance).”

BENNETT, DAMARCUS JORDAN

    15 days in jails for using a gun is not punishment!

    Something wrong with our courts and sentencing for this kind of crime. He should have done at least 2 years.

    This punk got off way to easy!!!!!!!

      no but your reading comprehension is total shit. I think it said more people need to get ccw permits and legal firearms tp PROTECT themselves FROM black males running around shooting everyone in mason city. I think without constant censorship this website would be way better off. if you cant admit that since section 8 took hold this whole area of iowa has gotten worse than youre either ignorant or part of the problem.just think people deserve to live in the town mason city used to be 25 years ago. not this violent drug infested crime ridden dead end it is now.

        One of the truest signs of maturity is the ability to disagree with someone while remaining polite. People of integrity don’t use insults to prove their point.

    Does the chamber of commerce play 76 trombones every time a greyhound from chitcago and deadlytroit arrive in Mason City at the Music Man Square – Lots of potential hockey puckers coming to town.

      Robin can play any music she wants in her fancy multi-million dollar palace (the real city hall). She can also owe $0 taxes on the place every year and she will never have to pay back the hundreds of thousands of dollars from state taxpayers that helped build it.

      Then Obama must’ve been very good at picking the “bad apples” because he sent more than our share to Mason City and all of north Iowa.

      ya everyone knows that is the truth bad apples of all colors. this “if you don’t have anything nice to say don’t say anything at all” that’s not productive. I know liberals don’t like the harsh reality of truth, ever. but we wont solve anything if we only try to find the positive in everything. that’s ok for children, its not ok for adults. you people that defend defend defend people you don’t even know….. its sick and sad. we need to talk about the reality that most black males in mason city ARE involved in crime. we need to talk about the likely hood that the drivebys were committed by black people we need to because it seems pretty obvious whos music and movies and culture are going to be more in the vain of drive by shootings, you hear about it in rap and black cinema and from angry black guys. not a lot of drive by shootings in white culture. if we could be serious about whos more than likely responsible for gun crime in mason city it would lower the potential suspect list. its not hard its more than likely black males between 16 and 36. honestly, I think the people that post on this site are a vocal minority or lying. when I hear regular people talking about this around town at work the store the gym everyone pretty much says straight up its Chicago and Detroit scum bags that are causing the majority of trouble, when they can stab a guy at the liquor store and put him through multiple sugerys and almost kill a man then get all of the charges dropped, why wouldn’t they feel emboldened and ready to do whatever they want to in this town, they know either they can pay off the cops or the cops are on their side somehow or they are just plain scared of African American criminals, in any case these people know if they commit their crime in mason city they will probably be fine because the police for some reason let these guys offend and offend and offend and don’t file charges, our courts slap them on the wrist and release them. its a joke. this whole town is run and policed by corrupt individuals.

        Shouldn’t we get rid of white trash people who steal,rape,drive drunk,do and sell meth and molest kids etc?

        Or is it just the blacks that need to go because you don’t like their culture and all?

          Only the black trash needs to go home to Shitcago. The white trash belong here – this land is their birthright. Hard working, law abiding citizens are of course always welcome here, regardless where they come from or the color of their skin.

    im sure somehow hes probably innocent and the reason hes locked up is because everyones racist. truth time, black males are making this town extremely unsafe. we should send people back to Detroit or Chicago or shoot them in the streets, either way we need to make sure we have less black males in our community. its becoming a ridiculous safety issue. they have no respect sell drugs and steal when they aren’t shooting at eachother, if only they knew how to aim….

      Nothing racist about this it’s a pos black guy who done wrong and there are unfortunately more of them same as if he was white or Hispanic there are bad seeds in every single race.
      The problem is some assume because someone is black and dress a certain way then they from Chicago and a thug and if they Hispanic then they illegal and mooching off the government but if white oh he is just dumb or misunderstood.
      Racism happens because of fear and ignorance.

        then…… don’t dress like a stereotypical criminal. don’t speak Spanish in America if you don’t want people to assume you have no right to be here. tacism happens because individuals choose to conduct themselves like trash. its not fear or misunderstanding. if youre gonna play a part and look act and speak like youre garbage people will usually treat you like garbage. no problem with a well spoken black person who showers and doesn’t have eight bastard kids. total problem with ebonics spitting loud outrageous fat pigs with 8 bastards no job and a grocery cart full of steak. same with Mexicans, no problem wit well spoken decently dressed normal people, just the Spanish speaking shit talking obnoxious meth head version that’s worthless, same with white people im white and I cant stand loser ass white people who use slang and ebonics dress like half retards steal use meth or anything else. im not a racist, I just know garbage human beings when I interact with them. based on that I can tell you a lot of the black people around here are very stereotypical and involved in nefarious acts daily.

            When has a Mennonite ever assaulted you or shot up your car/house? I don’t know for sure, but I doubt that any true Mennonite collects welfare. I also doubt that true Mennonites don’t go around knocking up as many women as they can.

            Sorry, I have a hard time associating/comparing the subjects in the post with Mennonites, and I thought that’s what was happening. I do have a sense of humor, sick at times, but still humor.

          Its how black people mostly talk so who gives a rip and how they dress doesn’t really matter as you got white trash people who dress in bibs and dirty shirts and have a bunch of kids too and do do drugs as well.

          There’s trash in every race so no point in assuming all a typical race is bad.
          You either stupid and ignorant or white trash yourself if you can’t figure it out.

          White trash people abuse welfare too.
          I saw a family in hyvee in dirty clothes drinking milk out of container passing it back and forth buying that and 20 pizzas,cookies,chips and ice cream and paying for that with an EBT card.

          As far as them knocking up fat white women well it takes two to tangle so perhaps the parent of said fat women should have set a better example instead of being white trash.

          You just simply hate black people because in your mind they and illegals are the only welfare mooches never mind the fact plenty of white trash people do it too.

          I hate to burst your bubble there is only so much you can get for food stamps so most don’t abuse it because they know they have to make it stretch.

          Educate yourself a little better then maybe you wouldn’t come across as an ignorant damn fool.
