Oskaloosa Man Arrested Following Standoff


Authorities responding to a call on Monday morning arrested an Oskaloosa man after a standoff.

The Oskaloosa Police Department says it received a report of a shot fired on the 500 block of Spring Creek Village Court. An investigation revealed the gunshot originated from a home several units down from the damaged home.

Officers from multiple agencies set up a perimeter around the residence the gunshot came from and evacuated residents from the adjacent units. While law enforcement attempted to make contact with the suspect, another shot was fired from the home.

Warrants for the home were obtained and a tactical team from the Iowa State Patrol entered the home using an armored rescue vehicle. The suspect, Paul Alonza Price, surrendered without incident.

Price was transported to the Mahaska County Jail. He has been charged with reckless use of a firearm causing damage to property, an aggravated misdemeanor.
