Police secure the area on October 1st following a shooting in the area of 6th and Maple Streets

The Iowa Division of Criminal Investigation has released the names of the officers involved in a Sunday police shooting that killed a 27-year old Burlington man.

The DCI reports that Burlington Officers Chris Chiprez and Josh Riffel were involved in a traffic stop in the area of South 9th Street and Vine that ended with the death of Marquis Jones. Jones allegedly fled from police behind a house in the 600 block of Maple Street, where he was shot in the chest just before 2:00 pm.

A handgun, not belonging to police, was found on the scene.

The DCI says preliminary findings indicate that only Chiprez fired his service weapon.

Both Officers remain on paid administrative.
