Agents with the Iowa DCI are investigating a shooting involving three central Iowa police officers. Special Agent in Charge Michael Motsinger says the incident started with a 9-1-1 call at 10:30 last night in the town of Boone.
"The caller advised that a male subject was outside and had a handgun in his hand," Motsinger told Radio Iowa. "At that time, the Boone Police Department and Boone County Sheriff’s Office responded to the scene." The male subject was located in an alley in the 1700 block of Mamie Eisenhower Road.
Motsinger says the officers confronted the man and at 10:48 pm, a call was placed for an ambulance on the report of shots fired. The male subject was hit by the gunfire. There’s no indication that he fired on the officers.
"The preliminary investigation indicates that three police officers were involved in discharging their weapons," Motsinger said. It is not known how many times the man was hit. His name is not being released and there’s no word on his condition. He was taken the Boone County Hospital and later airlifted to Mercy Medical Center in Des Moines.
