DAVENPORT, Iowa (AP) — A man who was shot by a Davenport police officer during a confrontation has died, according to the Iowa Department of Public Safety.
Bobby Klum, 37, was walking on a Davenport street while pointing a gun to his head on Wednesday afternoon, the Department of Public Safety said. He refused officers' order to lower his gun, the agency said.
After officers fired two less-lethal rounds at Klum “to no effect,” an officer shot him, authorities said.
Klum was later pronounced dead at Genesis East Hospital.
Klum had a lengthy criminal record and was on parole for a sex offender registration conviction from 2017, The Quad-City Times reported.
Since 2013, Klum had served time for third-degree burglary, second-degree theft, conspiracy to commit a felony, and violation of Iowa’s sex offender registration statutes. He had been convicted at least four times for aggravated misdemeanor charges of driving while barred.
