Autopsy Released in Officer's Death
DES MOINES, Iowa (AP) -- A criminal complaint says a Rockwell City police officer killed during a standoff was shot once in the neck with a high-powered rifle.
Jamie Buenting was shot early Friday as he and other law enforcement officers attempted to go inside a house to arrest 32-year-old Corey Trott on an outstanding warrant.
The complaint says Buenting was within a few feet of the house when Trott fired a single shot from a .224 caliber rifle. Trott surrendered to authorities a few hours later.
The complaint says Trott told authorities he knowingly fired the rifle at a police officer.
Trott is currently at the Sac County Jail on a first-degree murder charge. A phone number for his attorney went unanswered Monday.
