Law enforcement agencies, including the Iowa Division of Criminal Investigation, are currently conducting an investigation into a shooting incident that took place on Tuesday morning along I-80 in central Iowa.
The Des Moines Register reported that an incident occurred on Tuesday morning around mile marker 188 of westbound I-80.
According to a tweet posted by Iowa 511, the shooting incident occurred at approximately 8:30 on Tuesday morning, located about five miles east of the Grinnell exit.
For nearly two and a half hours, emergency vehicles blocked off the right lane of westbound I-80, causing traffic to come to a standstill. Fortunately, DOT cameras captured the moment when the lane was finally cleared, and traffic began to move steadily once again, just before 11 a.m.
According to Sgt. Alex Dinkla of the Iowa State Patrol, there is no threat to the public. He made this statement earlier today to the Des Moines Register in regards to the shooting incident that occurred on I-80 near Grinnell, Iowa.
On Tuesday afternoon, the Poweshiek County Sheriff’s Office made an announcement that an adult male lost his life in a shooting that occurred at 8:25 a.m. The suspected shooter has been arrested, but the names of both individuals have not yet been disclosed.
