Police later arrested him on a charge of felon in possession of a firearm.
Waterloo Police Chief Dr. Joel Fitzgerald released the following statement:
“Detectives investigating the shooting interviewed several witnesses confirming that Stewart sustained the gunshot wound pursuant to a struggle he had with bystanders.
