Update: stabbing and fatal shooting in Iowa City


IOWA CITY (KWWL) - Iowa City Police say one man is dead after a stabbing and shooting.

Police say they were called to the 300 block of E. Prentiss Street around 7:15 Friday night for a fight.

Police say they also had reports of a man with a gun at the same place.

Arriving at the scene, officers found an Iowa City man stabbed and a 26-year-old man with no known address shot.

Both were taken to the University of Iowa Hospitals and Clinics in Iowa City.

The gunshot victim later died from his injuries.

Police say the person who shot the homeless person was an on-duty Johnson County Sheriff's Deputy who was not in uniform.

The deputy reportedly told the homeless man to drop a knife.

The man instead moved toward the already stabbed Iowa City resident and the deputy shot the homeless man.
