Scott Michael Greene, the man wanted for shooting and killing two Des Moines metro area police officers, is reportedly in custody.

Greene was taken into custody without incident after he flagged down a DNR officer outside of Des Moines.

Officers responded to a report of shots fired at 1:06 a.m. and found an Urbandale Police Department officer who had been shot. Authorities from several agencies saturated the area after that shooting, and about 20 minutes later discovered that a Des Moines officer had been shot in a patrol car at an intersection, Des Moines Sgt. Paul Parizek said. The shootings happened about 2 miles apart.

Police are planning a news conference at 11 a.m. We will live stream that news conference when it happens.

This story will update as more information becomes available.
