Des Moines police: Man who shot houses, cars dies

Authorities say a man who fired dozens of rounds at houses and passing cars in a Des Moines neighborhood before exchanging gunfire with police has died.

Des Moines police say 38-year-old Steven Jon Vogel died Wednesday night.

Police say Vogel used two guns Wednesday afternoon to shoot about 100 rounds within 20 minutes on the city’s south side. He hit seven houses and three cars and wounded a man who drove himself to a clinic and was later taken to a hospital for treatment of a grazing wound to his head.

Police say Vogel then exchanged gunfire with officers, who later found him in his backyard, not moving.

The officers, Lt. David Seybert and Officer Zachary McCarthy, will be placed on paid administrative leave pending a review of the shooting.
