NORTH LIBERTY (KWWL) -
According to records released to KWWL, the University of Iowa asked Johnson County Sheriff Lonny Pulkrabek to place a hold on a handgun permit in 2010. The permit was requested by Taleb Salameh, who allegedly shot three North Liberty police officers Sunday night.
The records say Salameh was involved in a student assault in 2009. When he applied for a gun permit he was currently seeing a counselor and psychiatrist.
Salameh died Sunday night during crossfire with North Liberty police. Three officers were injured and have since been released from an Iowa City hospital.
Salameh was serving as a graduate assistant in the Mechanical Engineering program at the University of Iowa. He was enrolled this semester as a full-time student.
He received his undergraduate degree from the University of Iowa in 2009.
