1 dead in grocery story shooting in Iowa

BOONE, Iowa (AP) -- Authorities say police have shot and killed a person at a HyVee grocery store on Boone.

Police Chief Bill Skare told Boone radio station KWBG-AM that an emergency call came in about 10:50 a.m. Monday about a store employee armed with a knife.

The Des Moines Register reported that Skare says an officer shot and killed the former employee. Skare says the man had been running through aisles, waving a knife and knocking down merchandise.

Skare says the former employee's name and age haven't been released.

He declined to offer further details.

A telephone call to Boone police wasn't returned. A spokeswoman for West Des Moines-based HyVee declined to comment.
