(Radio Iowa) – A spokesman for the Polk County Sheriff’s Department says a man fired a gun at a deputy during an attempted traffic stop Tuesday, then barricaded himself inside a north Des Moines hotel. The traffic stop happened around 10:30 a-m and the man was taken into custody around 2:30 p-m without any problems.

The Saydel School district is nearby, and the district was put on lockdown as a precaution.
