A 21-year-old Council Bluffs man died Sunday after suffering an apparent gunshot wound to the head. A 69-year-old man turned himself in Monday morning after authorities issued a warrant for his arrest.

Police said they found Devon M. Theisen on a porch suffering from what appeared to a shotgun wound at an apartment building at 127 Park Ave. about 3 p.m.

He was taken by ambulance to the Nebraska Medical Center, where he died.

Witnesses told officers that Theisen was in a disturbance with Kenneth Still, also of Council Bluffs, who went inside an apartment, grabbed a shotgun and fired one shot at Theisen before fleeing in a green 2000 Xterra SUV with Iowa license plate No. GOM262.

An arrest warrant was issued for Still on suspicion of first-degree murder and being a felon in possession of a firearm. Still turned himself in at the Pottawattamie County Courthouse about 11 a.m. Monday, Bluffs police said.

He has an extensive criminal record, police said. That record includes several  felonies, ranging from drug-related offenses to arson to weapons violations.
