Waterloo police and Monroe County Sheriff’s Department deputies, including their K9 dog, are searching for a man on foot in the area near Immanuel Lutheran Church in Waterloo, following an incident in which the subject raised a gun in a crowd of people during a party on Kasey Lane and allegedly made threats.

The man, described as a white male in his mid-20s standing 5’9″ tall and wearing a dark long sleeve shirt and camoflauge pants, drove away from the party and the blue Dodge truck he was driving was found parked near the church.

UPDATE: Police took the man into custody without incident at 9:45 p.m. in between Wayne’s One Stop and Town & Country Auto.
