MANNING, Iowa (AP) – A 58-year-old Manning man faces a felony charge of terrorism after standoff at his home ended in a tear gas cloud. A Carroll County jailer says David Wurr remained in custody today (Monday), pending $25,000 bail. The incident began Friday night when a relative asked police to check on Wurr.
Carroll County Sheriff Doug Bass says Wurr had a pistol when he came to the front door a little before 8 p.m. He refused to leave his home but later talked to a negotiator who was called to the scene. Iowa State Patrol Lt. Darin Fratzke says several shots were fired inside the home, then more at officers outside. No injuries were reported.
Around 7:30 a.m. Saturday, tear gas was fired into the home, and officers went in to apprehend Wurr.
