Police search several vehicles, house in search for shooter

Posted: Updated:
WATERLOO (KWWL) - Police searched several vehicles and a home Friday afternoon in connection to two shootings that claimed the life of a Waterloo man.

Waterloo Police searched a car at the intersection of Logan and Edwards in front of Tri-City Clothing. They also searched a house in the 700 block of Logan nearby.

Police say those searches were related to the homicide investigation of Daequan Campbell, 18, of Waterloo. Campbell was shot and killed Thursday night on Langley Avenue in Waterloo.

No arrests were made in either of those two searches.

Waterloo Police now say five people stopped in a Dodge Durango are not related to the shooting investigation. The five were released and not charged with any crime.

Police did take the license plates off the Durango because of a registration violation.

Police say they have one suspect in the case, but aren't releasing a description because they are still interviewing witnesses.

It's the fourth homicide in the city this year, which makes 2013 the deadliest year in Waterloo in the past five years.


Police briefly blocked off the southbound lanes of Highway 63 in Waterloo near the Conger/Newell intersection just after 2 p.m. Friday.

At least six police cars ended up at the intersection and the target appeared to be a black Dodge Durango.

KWWL's Michael Crowe reports that the intersection reopened a few minutes later. Police were also removing the license plates from the Durango.

Five people -- one male and four females -- were being interviewed but none are currently under arrest.

It was not immediately clear if the incident was connected to two shootings that occurred yesterday and today in Waterloo that resulted in the death of one Waterloo man.
