Police Chief Jeff Olson said he couldn’t comment on any suspect or suspects developed during the investigation.
Saul is a native of Waterloo and played on the Waterloo Warriors high school hockey team, according to Courier files.
Less than 24 hours removed from Saul’s killing, the downtown holiday shopping event Jingle and Mingle went as planned Thursday night, said Cedar Falls Community Main Street executive director Carol Lilly.
“We have been, of course, in contact with the police department, and they recommend that we go on as planned,” Lilly said.
The event, “one of our bigger events for the holiday season,” is expected to draw a few thousand people to downtown Cedar Falls.
“This is really a night we want people to get in the stores and see what’s new,” she said.
