UPDATE: Waterloo Police investigate murder of 26-year old Des Moines man


Waterloo Police spent Saturday investigating an early morning homicide.

According to a release issued by the department, police officers were called to a home in the 300 block of Albany Street in Waterloo for a report of a man who had been shot and was on the ground.  

Police blocked off Albany St. between Linden Ave. and Beech St. for most of the day Saturday. They also blocked off part of the railroad tracks along Linden Ave. and MLK.

Neighbors said police knocked on their doors at about 2:30 a.m. on Saturday to ask if they heard anything.

When police arrived early Saturday morning, they found 26-year-old Anthony Gardner of Des Moines lying on the floor inside the porch of a home on Albany St. and efforts to revive him were unsuccessful, according to the police. 

Police said Gardner had been shot. The State Medical Examiner's Office in Ankeny will perform an autopsy.
