DES MOINES (KWWL) – The Iowa State Patrol says a woman was shot on the grounds of the Iowa State Capitol Sunday afternoon. Authorities say the woman is expected to survive and there is no active threat to the public.
Investigators say there was a “rally of some kind” at the Capitol building around the time of the shooting but aren’t sure yet if it was related.
In a Sunday night press release, the Iowa Department of Public Safety says the woman was transported to a local hospital and there will be new information released Monday morning.
Sgt. Alex Dinkla with IDPS says no one is under arrest because of the incident at this time. The state patrol and Division of Criminal Investigation are actively investigating the event.
