Police were called around 4 a.m. on a report of someone causing a problem. Marshalltown’s police chief says the responding officer and a person at the scene scuffled and the officer fired what is believed to be a single shot. Police say the person had refused to comply with the officer’s order.
The person was taken to a Des Moines hospital for treatment of a wound that is not considered life threatening.
