This is Stephen Schmidt from the Gazette digital news desk and I’m here with your update for Saturday, November 5, and Sunday, November 6.

The weekend will likely start with a continuation of Friday’s rain, but it should end up a mostly sunny affair overall. According to the National Weather Service, showers are likely, mainly before 1 p.m. in the Cedar Rapids area. It will be cloudy, with the skies eventually becoming mostly sunny, with a high near 50 degrees. It will also be breezy, with a wind of 10 to 15 mph gusting as high as 35 mph. The wind will calm as the day goes on and the clouds depart.

On Saturday night it will be mostly clear, with a low near 45 degrees. On Sunday it will be mostly sunny, with a high near 59 degrees. On Sunday night it will be mostly clear, with a low of around 36 degrees.

There was an update Friday on the shooting near three schools that caused lockdowns the day before.

A Mount Mercy University cross-country runner was injured when he was caught in a shooting Thursday afternoon while on his way to practice.

The 21-year-old student, whose name was not released, is expected to make a full recovery, according to campus officials.

The shooting happened just before 4 p.m. near Hazel Drive and Elmhurst Drive NE. Nearby schools Mount Mercy University, Regis Middle and Garfield Elementary all went into lock down.

Cedar Rapids police believe the student was inadvertently caught in gunfire between two or more shooters.

In an email sent to parents, Regis Principal Josh Gredys said the individual who was shot was transported to Regis “for safety and care. Due to the nature of this situation, students may have seen the injured person, in addition to blood from the wound.”

The injured Mount Mercy student was treated at the middle school before being transported by ambulance to a hospital. Police say his injuries are not life-threatening.

A judge Friday granted a motion to have a Marion man, who is accused of fatally assaulting his 19-day-old infant, undergo a mental evaluation. His murder case is suspended pending the outcome.

Sixth Judicial District Judge Jason Besler said Samuel Elijah Goodwin, 23, will have an evaluation by an independent psychologist, as requested by defense, and a status conference will be set in early January.

Pending the results of that evaluation, the prosecution may ask the court to have another evaluation by a state psychologist.

Goodwin, charged with first-degree murder and child endangerment resulting in death, admitted to police to assaulting the infant by throwing him in a crib and slamming his head into the floor because he wouldn’t stop crying, according to a criminal complaint.

It’s time for another Fall Back transition.

Daylight saving time is out, and standard time is in this weekend.

Standard time begins at 2 a.m. local time Sunday and lasts until March 12.

Remember to set your manual clocks back an hour before going to bed Saturday night. The time change means darkness will arrive earlier in the evening but it will be lighter earlier in the morning than now.
