Shots fired near Grant Wood Elementary School


According to a press release from Iowa City, the Iowa City police received a call Monday about a man being shot at 1930 Lakeside Drive.

After arriving on scene, the release said, officers found a gun incident occurred at the intersection of Lakeside Drive and Amber Lane but no injuries by any person were sustained.

A foot chase began between officers and numerous suspects leaving the area, the release said, and three suspects were taken into custody. They have charges pending.

Witnesses told officers, the release said, six or seven individuals got into a fight, which caused a gun to be dislayed and a shot fired to the ground.

Wood Elementary School and other nearby buildings were not involved in the matter, the release said, but Wood and Alexander Elementary canceled outdoor activities and kept doors locked.

The University of Iowa police and the Johnson’s County Sheriff’s Office were called to assist Iowa City officers, the release said, with further investigation being done by the city police.
