MASON CITY – A man is behind bars and charged with terrorism after firing a handgun at least four times at car in Mason City earlier in the day.

On November 24, 2018 at approximately 11:27 AM, The Mason City Police Department received a call of shots being fired at a car in the area of 8th and S. Kentucky. Upon arrival of officers, witnesses quickly directed officers to the subject shooting the gun, 18-year-old Manuel A Zamorano. Zamorano allegedly resisted arrest but was taken into custody. A short time later, the 9mm handgun believed to be used in the shooting was located in a nearby flower bed. There were 3 people in the car when Zamorano shot at it. Four shots were fired at the car or possibly at a person nearby. Nobody was struck by the bullets, nor was the car.

Zamorano was charged with Terrorism a Class “B” Felony; Assault on a Police Officer, an Aggravated Misdemeanor; Assault on Police Officer, a Serious Misdemeanor; Interference with Official Acts a Simple Misdemeanor; and Possession of Marijuana, a Serious Misdemeanor.

The Mason City Police Department was assisted by the Cerro Gordo County Sheriff’s Department, the Iowa State Patrol, and the Mason City Fire Department.

The Mason City Police Department also wants to acknowledge the public’s assistance was very helpful in the quick reporting of the incident and locating Zamorano.

    No border, no wall, no USA at all. Let the whole “caravan” in. Even the lawbreakers whose only crime is peeing in an alleyway. And then we need to let them vote. And then will the unpatriotic among us be happy?

      You have been on here enough you should know that it is usually the Schnider old man who deletes posts. He is the farthest thing in the world from a Democrat. He doesn’t like opposing viewpoints. And if your comment gets deleted along with the others, oh well. He is a idiot.

      Just for the record I do not delete someone unless they attack me or my family personally. There is a Liberal Dumb Ass who comes on here and deletes comments and then tries to blame other people. He is a cowardly P.O.S. who won’t put his name on here but loves to call people names. Also, you are a conservative as am I so I doubt very much I would ever delete your comment.

      I don’t feel sorry for the INVADERS. They made it to Mexico. And Mexico has very generously welcomed them in. They should STAY THERE.

        Ignorant is as ignorant does. It’s not the Republicans who want open borders, It’s not the Republicans who chant “no borders, no wall, no usa at all.”

        I don’t think that anonymous is a republican, (it) is just a trouble maker who jumps on the wagon whenever there is a disagreement. Besides, felons can’t vote.
