DUBUQUE (KWWL) -

A Dubuque man is being held in jail on $100,000 bond after police say he shot at officers on Monday night.

Police were called to 15th and Bluff streets at around 11:06 p.m. Monday after people reported seeing a man with a gun.

When officers arrived, they found the man in the area of 15th and Main streets. Lt. Scott Baxter says the man ran when he saw the officers.

According to Baxter, during the foot chase, the man, who was later identified as 29-year-old Daniel Lee Campbell Jr., dropped one gun, but then pulled out a second gun and fired a shot at officers while he was running.

After searching the area in the 1200 blocks of Main and Iowa streets, Campbell was located and arrested.

Both handguns were recovered. Baxter said both were determined to be stolen.

Campbell is charged with going armed with intent, possession of firearms by a felon and two counts of trafficking stolen weapons.

Dubuque Police were assisted by the Asbury Police Department, Dubuque County Sheriff's Office, Iowa State Patrol, and Dubuque Park Patrol.

No one was injured in the incident, which remains under investigation.
