NORTH LIBERTY — Two police officers were wounded in a North Liberty shooting Sunday night. According to the Associated Press, Iowa Department of Public Safety spokeswoman Jessica Lown said their injuries are not life-threatening.

Police, firefighters, and a SWAT team were called to Holiday Mobile Home Park on Highway 965 in North Liberty on Sunday night.

North Liberty police said no further details are being released at this time.

Residents of the neighborhood next to the park were told to leave their homes. They were not allowed to re-enter until approximately 8:25 p.m.

One man who was not allowed in his home waited in the Fareway parking lot across the street from the scene.

“It is what it is,” said Chris Pope, a North Liberty resident. “There’s a shooting. Trailer parks aren’t designed to take bullets.”
