COUNCIL BLUFFS -- Authorities have arrested a man they believe was involved in the shooting Tuesday morning at the Indian Hills Village Apartments.
Sgt. Chad Meyers of the Council Bluffs Police Department said Heather Wilson, 22, is expected to live after being shot multiple times this morning outside her apartment at 1455 McPherson Ave.
Meyers also said Wilson's 19-month-old son, Tyson Underwood, was shot in the lower right arm. The wound is not considered life-threatening.
Ronald L. Farr Jr., 30, of Harlan, Iowa, was arrested on suspicion of three counts of attempted murder, two counts of willful injury causing serious injury and one count of going armed with intent.
Neighbors said they heard an argument in the south parking lot of the apartment complex.
Kelly Longfox said she heard rapid gunfire about 5:40 a.m. She called 911.
Dan Petersen, who lives in the apartment below Wilson, said he heard the gunshots while lying in bed.
"I heard what sounded like 15 or 20," he said.
Petersen said gunfire is not something you hear at the apartments, which are northwest of St. Albert Schools.
"You see a lot of deer and wild turkey, but not gunshots," he said. "This is a quiet place."
Meyers said officers found Wilson on the ground next to her vehicle with multiple gunshot wounds.
Rescue workers took her to Creighton University Medical Center, which had no report on her status Tuesday afternoon.
Officers later discovered the little boy had been hit. He also was taken to Creighton and then transferred to Children's Hospital & Medical Center.
A second child was not injured, and a third child was still inside Wilson's apartment when the shots were fired.
Meyers said Farr was arrested at his home in Harlan without incident. Investigators are still trying to determine a motive.
