One man is dead after a five-hour standoff with law enforcement authorities in the central Iowa town of Ogden. The incident occurred around 9 o’clock last night at an Ogden home after deputies received a harassment call.

When deputies arrived the suspect confronted them waiving a handgun in a threatening manner. For several hours deputies negotiated with the man inside the home. Boone County Sheriff Ronald Fehr said a special response team was called in shortly before 1:30 this morning by firing a concussion grenade inside the home.

The deputies then made their way into the home when gunshots were fired. The suspect was then shot and pronounced dead at the scene. The name of the victim has not been released.

 The Iowa Division of Criminal Investigation is assisting the Boone County Sheriff’s Department in this investigation.
