Officers immediately took cover and established a perimeter around the apartment. Nearby residents and businesses were notified as a precaution. Many area businesses including those in the Millwork District were put on a "lock-down." The Dubuque Police Tactical Entry Teams were called to the scene, bringing a remote-controlled robot to assist in the situation. The robot was deployed and successfully located a subject inside the apartment, but attempts to establish further verbal contact were unsuccessful.

Subsequently, officers entered the apartment and found an adult male deceased from an apparent self-inflicted gunshot wound to the head. A paramedic from the Dubuque Fire Department pronounced the individual dead at the scene. The identity of the deceased is being withheld pending notification of next of kin.
