Man suspected of shooting at officers arrested in eastern Iowa

MIDDLE AMANA (AP) — A man suspected of shooting at law enforcement officers has been arrested in Iowa County.
Jeremy Krapp, 31, of Davenport, faces two counts of attempted murder and other charges. Court records don’t list the name of an attorney who could comment for him. He remained in the Iowa County Jail on Monday.
Officers who responded to the report of a car fire Friday night on Interstate 80 south of the Amana Colonies were unable to find the driver or any passengers. The car turned out to be stolen from Davenport, and it matched the description of a vehicle used in a Davenport robbery.
Deputies spotted a man, later identified as Krapp, walking along the interstate in the area about 5:45 a.m. Saturday. They reported that he pulled out a handgun and ran into a nearby field.
Several minutes later he shot at a patrol vehicle, missing two people inside, authorities said. He fired another shot at officers later and lit several small grass fires around a culvert he’d been hiding in, authorities said.
Krapp surrendered after officers deployed armored vehicles. No one was injured, and Iowa County Sheriff Rob Rotter said none of the officers fired any shots.
