West Des Moines man in police-involved shooting dies


WEST DES MOINES, Iowa -- A man shot by a police officer in West Des Moines has died.

The Iowa Division of Criminal Investigation says Scott Heisler, 45, was shot Friday night by West Des Moines Police Sgt. Kraig Kincaid.

Police say Heisler threatened officers with a gun as they tried to arrest him on an outstanding warrant in his home.

They say the officers' attempts to de-escalate the situation prior to the shooting were not successful.

The DCI says Kincaid, who is a 16-year veteran of the West Des Moines Police Department, has been put on paid administrative leave.
