An 18 year old was shot to death last night. Tuesday night at 7:10 multiple calls of shots fired in the area of the 100 block N 10th St came in to Webster County Dispatch. When officers arrived on scene, they located an unresponsive male on the sidewalk in front of the Community Health Center in Fort Dodge. Officers began life‐saving efforts on the male before medics arrived, but the man was ultimately pronounced dead. Investigators were called in and the scene was processed, and witnesses were located.
