CRESCO – Authorities are investigating a woman’s death at a Cresco mobile home.
A man was taken into custody following a standoff with police Thursday morning. Iowa Division of Criminal Investigation spokesman Mitch Mortvedt said an Iowa State Patrol SWAT team negotiated the peaceful surrender.
The identity of the deceased and other details weren’t immediately available.
Cresco police officers were sent to the 700 block of South Elm Street around 1:30 a.m. Thursday for a report of gunfire in the area, according to the DCI.
When police arrived, they found a person barricaded inside a mobile home.
After several hours of negotiation, police were able to detain the barricaded man. Officers then discovered a dead body inside the home.
