WILLIAMSBURG, Iowa (AP) - Police say an Ainsworth man shot at a man from Iowa City at a Ramada Inn Hotel east of Williamsburg.

Local media outlets report the man faces attempted murder charges.

According to an Iowa County Sheriff’s Office news release, the 48-year-old man was arrested minutes after shooting at the other man with a 9 mm semi-automatic weapon and missing on Saturday morning.

Iowa County Sheriff Rob Rotter said the suspect’s weapon jammed when he tried to shoot again, allowing the other man to escape uninjured.

The suspect is being held in the Iowa County Jail. It is not immediately clear if he is being represented by an attorney.
