In 2017, a Waterloo man shot and killed a 27-year-old in Floyd County. This week, the shooter Armando Adame III was convicted of the Oct. 25th, 2017 first-degree murder – another charge of possession of an offensive weapon.
According to The Courier, the victim, Michael Bruce Johns, was a Grundy Center man and in Oct. of 2017 purchased meth with Adame. After a drive to Charles City, the tandem found out the meth was actually ibuprofen.
Adame assumed Johns was in on the fake-out and shot him in the head with a sawed-off shotgun. He then disposed of the body in a ditch and Johns was determined missing for a long period of time before they found his cell phone’s satellite location.
Sentencing will be in March. The Floyd County jury found Adame guilty and he could face a lifetime in prison.
