WATERLOO -- A shooting Friday in Waterloo has turned into a homicide investigation.

One of two men shot has died, police said, and the other remains hospitalized after the broad daylight shooting Friday.

Waterloo police responded to a call for shots fired shortly before 4 p.m. in the 100 block of Center Street and were later called to a home at 1200 Ackermant St. to find two men who appeared to be in their early 20s suffering from gunshot wounds.

Both men, whose names were not being released by police pending notification of relatives, were transported by Waterloo Fire Rescue to the hospital. One man later died, police said.

The victims arrived at the home in a black sport utility vehicle, which had front-end damage and a deployed airbags. A neighbor said the injured driver ran into the house while the passenger stayed in the car.

The neighbor said there was not a history of trouble at the home and did not believe either of the victims lived there.

The shooting apparently happened near the intersection of Utica and Center streets, roughly 10 blocks away.

Waterloo police officers had secured that area and the home where the victims were discovered.
