Iowa shooting: Gun shops raided, suspects arrested after shooting

A man was shot and killed in Iowa on Thursday, a police chief said.

Officers responded to a call of shots fired near the intersection of the Interstate 45 and West Iowa Freeway around 5:30 p.m. local time, Iowa State Patrol Trooper Daniel Stapleton said in a statement.

When they arrived, they found a man in the street with a gunshot wound, Stapelton said.

Police said they recovered a handgun from the scene.

The suspect was identified as Joseph Breen, who lived in an apartment in the 1200 block of N. Cedar Street.

Stapleton said police believe Breen was armed with a handgun at the time of the shooting.

He was taken to a local hospital, where he died.

A gun shop owner who owned the shooting was arrested in Sioux Falls, according to Iowa State Police.

Authorities said the owner is a member of the same family that owns the gun shop in Iowa.

A search of the suspect’s apartment turned up an AK-47 assault rifle, a rifle and ammunition, according the Iowa State Park Police.
