A 55-year-old man from Iowa, identified as Salvador Perez-Garcia, drove his white truck head-on into a parked police car inside the Hard Rock Casino car park. The police vehicle had a Sioux City officer inside when the collision occurred. As the truck exited the parking garage, it also rammed into a second police vehicle that belonged to responding officers. According to the Iowa Division of Criminal Investigation, when Perez-Garcia stepped out of his vehicle, he was “swinging a length of chain with an affixed metal object in an aggressive, threatening manner.”
Officers at the scene attempted to retrieve the weapon from the suspect and de-escalate the situation, but Perez-Garcia continued to advance on the officers. As a result, the officers shot him and he died at the scene. Police have not released any more information about the incident at this time.
