Local News

SIOUX CITY, Iowa (KCAU) — A woman who acted as the driver for the three men who fired weapons into a house in the 2600 block of Walker Street that took one person’s life and injured three others, was taken into custody.

According to police, Liliana O. Gutierrez, 20, surrendered to police Tuesday evening and was booked in the Woodbury County Jail at 2:29 p.m. She is currently held on a $50,000 bond.

There is no evidence showing that Gutierrez fired any of the weapons involved and appears to only have acted as the driver.

According to court documents, Gutierrez was dating one of the suspects of the New Year’s shooting. The documents do not specify who she was dating. She drove them to 2637 Walker Street, with all three suspects getting out of the vehicle and shooting into the house where a New Year’s party was happening. After the shots were fired, the three suspects ran back to the vehicle and all parties left the scene.

Detectives with the department continue to seek additional evidence involved in the shooting and charges will be filed against anyone who has or is taking part in concealing that evidence.

Anyone with additional information on this investigation is encouraged to call the Sioux City Police Department at 712-279-6960.
