Iowa State Patrol Troopers and local law enforcement officers responded to a 911 call of “shots fired” along Interstate I-80 East of the 265 mile marker at the rest area. The suspect then drove west bound and exited at the 265 exit where he fired more rounds at motorists at the BP gas station. Troopers encountered the suspect on County RD X46 where they engaged him and exchanged gunfire. After a brief stand-off, officers were able to take the suspect into custody. No injuries were sustained by the suspect or law enforcement.
The Division of Criminal Investigation (DCI) is investigating as a result of officers involved in shooting. The Officers involved and the suspect’s name will not be released at this time.
