COUNCIL BLUFFS, Iowa (KMTV) — An officer-involved shooting is under investigation by the Iowa Division of Criminal Investigation.

Authorities said officers with the Iowa Department of Corrections' 4th Judicial District's High-Risk Unit were searching for Kelsey Hanna and Brandon Hines following parole warrants.

Shortly after 1 p.m. Friday, officers said they saw Hines and Hanna leave a house and enter a black Ford SUV near 27th and Avenue G in Council Bluffs.
