A Fond du Lac man has been arrested in Dyersville. 21-year old Dammahum A. Gibson was arrested on warrants for First-Degree Intentional Homicide-Attempt, First-Degree Reckless Endangering Safety and 3 Counts of Bail Jumping. The Dubuque County Sheriff’s Office had received information that Gibson was in Dyersville, west of Dubuque, IA.

There were no injuries reported as a result of the shootings.
