A 20-year-old northwest Iowa man who was the subject of a police search on Sunday has been charged with attempted murder.

Law Enforcement officials in Dickinson County say a shooting was reported at a home in the small unincorporated town of Montgomery on Sunday, and a person was seriously injured.

Residents in the area were urged to keep their vehicles secured as police searched for Caleb Crosby of Spirit Lake. He was arrested in Osceola County a few hours after the shooting.

In addition to the attempted murder charge, Crosby has been charged with stealing a pick-up from a home in Lake Park and with stealing a truck from the home in Montgomery where the shooting occurred.

Online records show Crosby was arrested at the scene of a fire in Montgomery in March and charged with drug and alcohol possession. Last month he was charged with theft and operating a vehicle without the owner’s consent.
