All because of a donut

Derrick Roberts, 23, of Chicago is accused of attempted murder and other charges as a result of his actions for feeling "disrespected":
Roberts is charged with attempted murder, intimidation with a dangerous weapon and willful injury causing serious injury. He is accused of shooting Delores Smith, 50, of Cedar Rapids, May 2, 2009 while she was in a parked van in the 1200 block of Third Avenue SE. Smith was seriously injured in the shooting.

This case is about the choices Derrick Roberts made last year when he felt disrespected after being hit by a powdered sugar donut and decided to take revenge, Assistant Linn County Attorney Jason Burns said in his opening statement.
