"This past weekend was a weekend this department hasn't experienced, at least in the 32 years I've been on this department," said Doug Young, Sioux City police chief.
Over two days, the Sioux City police department was taxed with investigating a murder, the stabbing of four people, two armed robberies and several traffic accidents.
The suspects for those robberies remain at large.
In custody though, a man, police believe shot and killed a woman on the city's west side.
33 year old Fernando Jaimes-Martinez of Sioux City is charged with First Degree Murder, Willful Injury, and Intimidation with a Weapon.
He is currently being held on $1 million bail.
"It erupted into a neighborhood dispute," said Doug Young, Sioux City police chief.
Police say about a dozen people were there. That's when they say the brothers of Fernando Jaimes-Martinez started stabbing people... injuring four.
"I know that there were brothers involved in the fighting. At this point, we're not sure about who did what," said Young.
When the dispute escalated, several people left this corner house and began running across the street because police say Martinez began firing shots into the crowd.
Police say one of those people, 27-year-old Karla Gonzalez, who was visiting friends that evening, was shot in the head and killed. The four stabbing victims were taken to both Sioux City hospitals where two of them are still recovering.
"There's still a lot of people that need to be interviewed. In fact, a couple of those individuals that were stabbed need to be talked to also," said Young.
Martinez's brothers could face charges as well, for the stabbings.
"It's still under investigation. I'm sure that if there's charges to be filed, additional charges will be filed," said Young.
Martinez has been arrested before.
Back in 2004 he was arrested and served jail time for operating a vehicle while intoxicated, eluding police and interference with a police officer.
