Reward for information on fatal June 1 shooting upped to $5,000


The reward for information leading to the arrest of a Marshalltown man wanted for first degree murder in connection with a June 1 shooting outside of the Center Street Station bar has been increased to $5,000, according to a press release from the Marshalltown Police Department.

After first responders were called to the aforementioned scene at about 1:20 a.m. on June 1, officers found an adult male, 41-year-old Ramon Alexis Feliciano Nieves, suffering from a gunshot wound. Emergency medical care was administered at the scene, but Nieves subsequently died after being transferred to a medical facility.

The MPD has identified Victor Antonio Delgadillo, 18, of Marshalltown, as the suspect in the shooting, and he currently remains at large with active arrest warrants for first degree murder and first degree harassment.

The Marshall County Crime Stoppers have put forth a $5,000 reward for information leading to Delgadillo’s arrest. Marshalltown Police Chief Mike Tupper noted that Marshall County Crime Stoppers has been an important community partner since 2015, and the collaboration between the organization and local law enforcement has resulted in the successful resolution of “countless crimes.”

“Marshall County Crime Stoppers is a critically important public safety partner. We appreciate their generous support on this case and many others over the past nine years. This murder investigation is our number one priority. We will not rest until Mr. Delgadillo is safely taken into custody,” Tupper said.

The chief added that the MPD continues to receive helpful information from the public regarding the investigation, and he said information has been received that indicates Delgadillo is “receiving assistance” from people that has allowed him to evade law enforcement.

“We will arrest and prosecute anyone who is knowingly aiding and abetting Mr. Delgadillo. We urge Mr. Delgadillo to follow the advice of his legal counsel and turn himself in. The only way to resolve this issue is to do so through the court process,” Tupper said.

Because of the ongoing nature of the investigation, the chief said he could not provide specific details on how Delgadillo is being aided and abetted in his efforts to avoid being arrested. Anyone with information is asked to contact the MPD at (641) 754-5725 or 911. Tips can be submitted anonymously by calling Marshall County Crime Stoppers at (641) 753-1234 or via text by texting the word “marshall” followed by the tip to CRIMES (274637).
