Iowa authorities investigate after fleeing suspect dies
FORT DODGE, Iowa (AP) — Iowa authorities are investigating after a fleeing suspect died after exchanging gunfire with deputies from the Webster County Sheriff’s office.
After a domestic disturbance was reported Tuesday morning, deputies spotted the suspect’s vehicle and tried to stop it. But the Webster County Sheriff’s office says the suspect fired at officers as the chase continued just outside Fort Dodge, Iowa.
Officers fired back at the suspect’s vehicle, which came to rest in a field. The deceased suspect was found inside.
The Iowa Division of Criminal Investigation will investigate the incident.
