On June 10th, 2016 at approximately 7:25 PM, a juvenile male came to the Plymouth County LEC to report that his father had fired a handgun at him during an argument. Plymouth County deputies responded to 16426 Lake Ave, Le Mars and began to set up a perimeter around the residence. Assistance was requested from outside agencies and the following responded, Le Mars and Merrill Police, Sioux County Sheriff’s Office, Iowa State Patrol and the Le Mars Ambulance.

During the investigation, it was determined that Bradley William Kass, age 54 of that address, had fired 3 rounds in the area of the juvenile male with the intent of placing him in fear. It was also determined that Kass was currently the only one at the residence.
