The Iowa State Patrol was assisted at the scene by the Butler County Sheriff's Office, Shell Rock Fire Department/EMS, New Hartford Ambulance, and Waverly Ambulance.
A Waterloo man described by the judge as a very dangerous person has been sentenced to eight years in prison.
Twenty-eight-year-old Trenton Sliekers pleaded guilty in federal court to being a felon in possession of a firearm.
According to a news release from the U-S Attorney's Office Slickers admits shooting six bullets into a house occupied by children and adults. One of the bullets lodged in a couch cushion.
Before sentencing, the federal judge cited Slickers' previous convictions and called him a violent man who's likely to commit more crimes in the future.
Online records indicate Slickers has about a dozen convictions in STATE court over the past decade, the most recent for intimidation with a dangerous weapon.
