      Police arrest man after killing of bicyclist

      Joshua James Royer, 38
      Burlington police have arrested a man in connection with the shooting death of a bicylist who was riding through a residential area. The Hawk Eye reports 50-year-old Eddie Cooper Martin died Wednesday evening at an Iowa City hospital after being shot multiple times earlier in the day as he biked through a neighborhood. Late Wednesday, police charged 38-year-old Joshua James Royer, of Burlington, with first-degree murder. Investigators say it doesn't appear Martin and Royer knew each other. Police declined to discuss a motive for the killing. Martin was initially taken to a Burlington hospital before being flown to Iowa City, where he died. Online court records don't indicate whether Royer has an attorney.
