Mason City Police looking for surveillance video after overnight shooting sends one to the hospital
(ABC 6 News) – The Mason City Police Department is asking for surveillance video that may show what led to an overnight shooting in northwest Mason City.
Police said a call was made requesting an ambulance just before 1 a.m. to a home near N Federal Ave and 9th St NW. Police said the caller was not cooperative and would not provide much information to dispatch.
First responders arrived and located a 24-year-old with a non-life-threatening gunshot wound. They were taken to Mercy One North Iowa Medical Center.
Police interviewed the victim and other people inside the apartment but said none of them were very cooperative, "especially when asked for a specific location where the shooting occurred or why it occurred."
Due to lack of cooperation, police are asking residents and businesses within a one-block radius of 9th and N Federal Ave to review surveillance camera footage from approx 12:30 – 12:50 a.m. Wednesday morning. Police are looking for any footage that may show two or more pedestrians arguing over a backpack before the shooting occurred in this general area.
