Identities Released in Officer-Involved Shooting in Burlington

Nov 15, 2019

The Iowa Division of Criminal Investigation has released the identities of the people involved in an officer-involved shooting in Burlington on Nov. 7.

The DCI said Stone Graham, 18, fired a shotgun at officers. The agency said Deputy Dilan Beaird and Sergeant Kevin Glendening, both of the Des Moines County Sheriff’s Office, returned fire.

Graham was shot once in the leg and taken to the hospital for treatment. None of the law enforcement officers involved were injured.

The DCI said the deputies involved are cooperating with the investigation, which is underway. Once the investigation is complete, the Iowa Attorney General’s Office will review the findings at the request of the Des Moines County Attorney’s Office.

Burlington police initially responded to a shots fired call at about 3:00 pm on Nov. 7. The officers said they found evidence that shots had been fired, but the alleged shooter had fled the scene.

An hour later, police responded to a vehicle accident. Witnesses told law enforcement they saw a man run from the vehicle with a shotgun.

Officers finally discovered Graham at about 4:45 pm, which is when they exchanged fire.

This was the second officer-involved shooting in Burlington this fall.
