CEDAR RAPIDS, Iowa (AP) - A man has been arrested in a shooting that killed a pregnant woman and wounded another woman at a Cedar Rapids apartment complex, police said Friday.

Johnnie Osborne IV is jailed without bond on suspicion of first-degree murder in the death of 25-year-old Asia Taqara Grice, nonconsensual termination of a pregnancy, attempted murder and the willful causation of a serious injury. Court records show that no charges have been filed. It wasn’t immediately clear if he had an attorney.

Police said officers responded at about 4:40 a.m. Friday to an apartment complex. Police said Grice, who was pregnant, was pronounced dead at the scene, while the second victim was transported to a hospital for treatment, the Gazette reports.

The preliminary information indicated shooting was targeted.

Osborne was located later outside of a motel room and taken into custody around 7:20 a.m.
