Officer Involved Shooting In South Sioux City

Officer Involved Shooting In South Sioux City

The Dakota County attorney has released names and other details about an officer-involved shooting.

County Attorney Kim Watson said in a news release Monday that Luis Quinones Rosa died at a hospital early Saturday morning after exchanging gunshots with South Sioux City Officer Brian Van Berkum.

Watson says Van Berkum confronted Rosa because he matched the description of a man who’d been seen with a gun in a South Sioux City bar. Watson says Rosa shot first at Van Berkum, striking him in a leg and in the abdomen.

Watson says Van Berkum then returned the fire, hitting one of Rosa’s legs. Rosa was found unresponsive later in a nearby vehicle and taken to the hospital, where he died.

Van Berkum is recovering from surgery.
