Police: Man Seriously Injured in Shooting on Des Moines’ South Side


DES MOINES, Iowa — Police are investigating after a man suffered serious injuries in a shooting on Des Moines’ south side Tuesday morning.

Officers were dispatched to a home in the 4200 block of SW 10th St. just before 10:00 a.m. Tuesday on a report of a shooting. According to Sgt. Paul Parizek with the Des Moines Police Department, a male victim called 911 saying someone had forced their way into the home and he’d been shot.

The victim is hospitalized and Parizek said, “His condition is pretty serious but we’re hoping that he’ll recover.”

One person has been detained and detectives are investigating their possible involvement in the shooting.

Parizek said they don’t believe the shooting was random and “It’s unusual that we see these things in the middle of the day but then when you’ve got sub-zero temperatures, the fact that this type of crime is continuing just, you know, it’s so frustrating for everybody, including the neighborhood.”

This is a developing story and we’ll bring you more information as it becomes available.
