COGGON: Authorities searched Monday for a man who shot and wounded a sheriff’s deputy during an armed robbery at a gas station in rural eastern Iowa.
Linn County Sheriff Brian Gardner said Monday the deputy was hospitalized with serious injuries but in stable condition. He said it was the first shooting of one of his office aides since 1973.
The officer responded shortly after a report of an alarm at 10:19 p.m. Sunday at Casey’s General Store in Coggon, a city of 700 people about 25 miles (40 kilometers) north of Cedar Rapids, the sheriff said. The man opened fire and the agent was hit by multiple bullets.
The man, believed to be in his 30s, fled in a van and was pursued by another officer until the suspect crashed and fled on foot. The search was ongoing for him on Monday and involved numerous agencies.
“ We have identified a person of interest and if we do not locate him this morning, we will be asking the public for help, ” Gardner said, adding that he hoped to reveal the man’s identity later that day.
During the night, authorities asked people living near Coggon to stay inside and close their doors. Gardner said they should be cautious and “call us if they see anything unusual.”
The injured aide was airlifted to University of Iowa hospitals and clinics in Iowa City for treatment, and authorities did not immediately identify him.
Coggon Mayor Heather Beeh said residents were concerned overnight as the persecution continued.
“It was a lot of waiting and you never know what will happen,” he said.
