Iowa News

WATERLOO, Iowa (AP) — Police have made an arrest in the shooting death last year of a Waterloo man.

Reports say that police arrested 28-year-old Stephen Devon Phillips on suspicion of first-degree murder in the May 15 death of 30-year-old Terrell Bernard Flowers.

Investigators have said the shooting followed an argument between the two men earlier in the day during a gathering at a Waterloo home.

Police say Phillips was told to leave the house and that he told people on his way out that he would return and “shoot up the place.”

Police say Phillips later returned to the house and again argued with Flowers before pulling a gun and firing.
