Local law enforcement agencies involved in stand-off over weekend
According to the Jasper County Sheriff’s Office, multiple local law enforcement agencies were involved in a stand-off that started early Saturday morning with a man who was threatening suicide and in possession of a handgun.
The incident took place at a residence on Highway F36 West, and multiple residents tried to disarm the individual before the sheriff’s office and the Newton Police Department arrived at the scene. Upon arrival, deputies witnessed the individual run into the residence with a handgun, and authorities surrounded the home.
Officers then tried to make contact with the individual, and the Jasper County Sheriff’s Office Emergency Response Team also arrived at the scene. Additional support from NPD, an Iowa State Patrol aircraft unit and the Baxter and Monroe police departments also was received.
