A report of shots fired around 1:30 this morning led authorities to a Cresco trailer court overnight, and a man suspected of killing a woman there was taken into custody.
The Iowa Division of Criminal Investigation said this morning that the Cresco Police Department and an Iowa State Patrol SWAT team negotiated a peaceful surrender after several hours.
Officers then located the deceased individual inside the trailer home.
The Howard County Sheriff’s Office said just after 9 a.m. that the threat had ended.
Law enforcement had asked local schools to delay the start of classes two hours as a safety measure.
Names of subjects involved have not been released pending notification of relatives.
Authorities continue to investigate.
