WATERLOO (KWWL) -

A man is in custody in Waterloo after an overnight shooting outside Walnut Court senior living apartments.

Waterloo Police were called to the 300 block of Walnut St. around 1:30 a.m.  Neighbors tell us they called police because a man on the street was threatening a woman in a third floor apartment.

Neighbors say the man was posing as a cop staring at a third floor apartment.  They said the man blew out the front right tire on a car then aimed his gun to the third floor apartment and fired.

The blast sent shotgun pellets through a window and into the ceiling of that apartment.

Police say they took a man into custody with a gun but at this time are not making his name public.

Around 3:00 a.m. officers were still out searching the area for a hat and a shirt.  Neighbors say he ditched some items when running from police. 

Police say no one was hurt.
