Grand jury declines to bring charges after Iowa officer shoots man dead

TOLEDO, IOWA – A grand jury conducted an investigation and declined to bring charges after an Iowa officer shot a man dead last year.

On October 28, 2021, at approximately 7:27 PM, the Tama county sheriff’s office received calls reporting gunshots had been fired near the residence at 1001 Station Street in Chelsea, Iowa. Several law enforcement agencies from the surrounding area responded and upon arrival, observed 28-year-old Dewey Dale Wilfong III displaying a handgun toward others in a threatening manner. A standoff escalated to the point Wilfong discharged the firearm he possessed. A Tama county deputy fired one round striking Wilfong III in the upper torso. Wilfong III was transported to UnityPoint Health-St. Luke’s Hospital in Cedar Rapids where he was pronounced dead.

The Iowa Department of Public Safety’s Division of Criminal Investigation was called in to conduct an independent investigation into the shooting.
