WATERLOO, Iowa (AP) - The Iowa Division of Criminal Investigation will probe the police shooting of an alleged armed suspect in Waterloo.

Black Hawk County deputies reportedly found the man nearby, and Waterloo police are reported to have shot the suspect. The man was taken to Allen Hospital after the shooting.

Authorities have not released the wounded man’s name or medical condition, nor have they released any details about what led to the shooting.
