The Fort Dodge Police Dept. issued a statement Tuesday Afternoon identifying the victims of the Tuesday Morning shooting incident in the Pleasant Valley Area of Fort Dodge.
Investigators with the Fort Dodge Police Department’s Criminal Investigations Division, alongside agents
with the Iowa Division of Criminal Investigation have continued working on this incident throughout the
day. Investigators are still working to solidify the timeline of events that led up to the shooting.
The victims in this case have been identified as the following;
25‐year‐old Jamael Cox of Fort Dodge, IA (deceased)
o Mr. Cox was located in the 900 Block of 10th Avenue Southwest with a gunshot wound
to the upper torso and ultimately pronounced dead at the scene.
47‐year‐old Tyrone Cunningham of Fort Dodge, IA (deceased)
o Mr. Cunningham was in the area of the 900 Block of 10th Avenue Southwest at the time
of the shooting and was struck by gunfire in his lower extremities before leaving the
area in his vehicle. Mr. Cunningham fled the area before losing consciousness and
crashing his vehicle in the intersection of South 15th Street and 6th Avenue South. Mr.
Cunningham was pronounced dead at the scene of the accident.
21‐year‐old Marissa Andrews of Fort Dodge, IA
o Ms. Andrews was nearby when the shooting occurred and was struck by gunfire in the
face and leg. She was transported to Unity Point – Trinity Regional Medical Center in
stable condition before being transferred to a Des Moines area hospital for further
treatment of her injuries.
30‐year‐old Jayne Bartrom of Wesley, IA
o Ms. Bartrom was nearby when she was struck in the lower leg by gunfire during the
incident. She was transported to Unity Point – Trinity Regional Medical Center where
she was treated and released.
At this stage of the investigation, all victims appear to have been bystanders while other
individuals were firing at one another. It is unfortunate that individuals chose to act out in such a
violent manner, taking the lives of two individuals enjoying time together. We strongly encourage those
who have information to contact the police department to ensure those responsible are held
accountable as quickly as possible.
We here at Alpha Media Fort Dodge would like to extend our deepest condolences to the families of Jamael Cox and Tyrone Cunningham.
