IOWA CITY — An Iowa City man was arrested and jailed after police say he shot his landlord, who was at his residence to fix a plumbing problem last month.
Carter Wolf, 24, is accused of firing through his bedroom door at least six or seven times in the direction of the landlord, according to a Johnson County criminal complaint. The victim was struck by multiple bullets and needed immediate surgery and hospitalization, police say.
The landlord of the residence in the 400 block of E. Fairchild Street in Iowa City made arrangements to fix a plumbing issue at the house on Dec. 21, the criminal complaint said.
He later proceeded upstairs to knock on a bedroom door to gain access to plumbing, which is when Wolf fired his weapon, the criminal complaint said. Wolf’s door was not the door the landlord was knocking on, according to police.
Police say Wolf admitted to firing his gun through his closed door in the direction of the victim, and that he never saw the victim.
Wolf was charged with reckless use of a firearm that resulted in serious injury, a Class C felony. He is being held on $25,000 cash or surety bond.
