Police in Charles City, in northeast Iowa, are looking for a man who is wanted on charges of attempted murder and kidnapping. Police Chief Mike Wendel says 24-year-old Jerome Williams is wanted for an incident that occurred last Friday night.
He says officer responded to a report of a shooting. When they arrived at the home, located at 509 Wright Street, they found 25-year-old Lamont Frazier had been shot. His injuries are not believed to be life-threatening.
Wendel says the two men know one another, so he does not believe Friday’s shooting was a random act. Still, he does warn that Williams should be considered armed and dangerous. “We don’t think the public is in any immediate danger from Mr. Williams being at large,” Wendel said. The shooting happened at Frazier’s home. Wendel declined to talk about a possible motive.
“We’re not releasing a lot because it’s still under investigation,” Wendel told Radio Iowa. “There’s a lot of unanswered questions at this point.”
