Officers with the Sioux City Police, U.S. Marshals, DEA, and Woodbury County were working on a lead early Tuesday morning that led them to believe the suspect, Felix Navarrete, was inside an apartment in Sioux City's Morningside neighborhood.
There were several people in the apartment when the SWAT Team arrived at the building and once they knew everyone but Navarrete was out of the apartment they entered.
At about 9:20 a.m., police say Navarrete was armed with a handgun and tried to flee the apartment.
He was shot once in the chest by a veteran SWAT officer posted outside the building.
Navarrete jumped from the second story window and fell to the ground where he was taken into custody and transferred to Mercy Medical Center.
He later died at the hospital.
Police say the others involved in these shootings are no cause for public concern.
"I don't think the community should be concerned about these people being out and about. Their violence has been directed towards each other," Chief Doug Young, Sioux City Police Department said.
While the three shootings have been spread across Sioux City, Police Chief Young has said from the beginning the incidents all involved a certain group of people."They choose the lifestyle that they want to live, and sometimes you suffer those consequences for the people that you run around with," Young said.
The latest in the string of shootings leading to Tuesday's events was just this Saturday.
