Updated 11:32 a.m. CT Dec. 5, 2019

LU VERNE, Ia. A Coralville man was charged in a Wednesday Lu Verne bank robbery and shooting.

Valentino Williams, 35
, of Coralville, was charged with first degree murder and first degree robbery in Kossuth County Court Thursday. Around 8:30 a.m. Wednesday authorities responded to calls of shots fired at Security State Bank in Lu Verne. Jessica Weishaar, 43, of Algona was identified as the victim. Weishaar works for Security State Bank, a locally owned business with four Kossuth County locations.

Kossuth County law enforcement was notified at 8:40 a.m. about the shooting in Lu Verne. Weishaar was found lying on the sidewalk in front of the bank.

Video from the scene showed the suspect wearing a dark colored Carhartt style coat with a hoodie pulled over his head, according to a criminal complaint. The video also showed the suspect exiting the vehicle carrying a dark colored backpack. At one point Williams moved the backpack from his right side to his left side, carried the backpack in his left hand and carried a large handgun in his right hand, the complaint said.

Williams then fired several shots at Weishaar before he fled the scene at a high rate of speed, the complaint said. Witnesses reported hearing three gunshots, the complaint said. Officers eventually lost sight of Williams on Iowa Highway 17.

At 9:38 a.m. Iowa State Patrol, Iowa Division of Criminal Investigation officers and officers from other agencies stopped a black SUV on interstate 35 near Dows, which matched a description of a vehicle seen near the seen of the shooting, the complaint said.

Williams has a long criminal history.
