MARSHALLTOWN, Iowa (AP) - A SWAT team has surrounded a home where a Marshalltown homicide suspect is thought to be hiding.

Authorities say the SWAT team was sent out Tuesday after they received a tip that 19-year-old Jose Morales was hiding out in the house. Police say Morales is wanted for first-degree murder after 20-year-old Dedrick Fisher was shot to death Saturday. Investigators believe Morales and Fisher knew each other.

KCCI-TV reports (https://bit.ly/1yH5KBd ) a SWAT team surrounded a different Marshalltown home Sunday, but did not locate Morales.

Police say Morales is considered armed and dangerous.
