On March 10, 2013, North Liberty Iowa Police Department officers were dispatched to a 911 domestic violence call. The caller heard screaming and witnessed a male jumping on a woman’s car and yelling. It was not their first call to this address.

Approaching the mobile home, officers located a woman, crying, with obvious signs of being assaulted. She was in the process of moving out when her boyfriend attacked. She informed the officers that her boyfriend had planned to remove his pistol from the trailer earlier in the day. He should be alone in the trailer.

Officers made their way up a ramp leading to the front door. There was little room to maneuver. Soon they made contact.
