Police Officer Michael Hoing and Police Officer Wayne Rice were shot and killed after responding to a noise complaint for the second time in one night.

As Officer Hoing called for backup the subject struck Officer Rice on the head and gained control of his service weapon. The man then shot Officer Rice once. Officer Hoing was able to return fire but was struck four times. Officer Rice succumbed to his injuries at the scene and Officer Hoing succumbed to injuries the following day at a local hospital.

Two days after the murders Deputy William Mullikin, of the Black Hawk County Sheriff's Department, was killed in an automobile accident while responding to a reported sighting of the subject. The subject was apprehended and sentenced to two life terms in prison with no chance for parole.

The man died on March 18th, 2014, while still incarcerated.

Officer Hoing had been with the agency for seven years and was survived by his wife and two sons.
