Webster County Sheriff’s Department Reports That Three People Were Killed in Sunday Night Shooting in Fort Dodge

The Webster County Sheriff’s Office has released information in regards to a shooting that took place Sunday night in Fort Dodge.

According to a release from Sheriff Luke Fleener, the Webster County Telecommunication Center received a call from 2101 140th Street in rural Webster County at 7:40 pm from a juvenile caller who stated that two people had been shot at this location, and the suspect had fled the location on foot. 

Webster County Deputies arrived to find two females that had been shot laying in the garage area of the residence. Deputies immediately attempted life saving medical procedures on both victims until paramedics arrived on scene, however the

attempts were not successful, and both victims died at the scene.

Criminal Investigation Division Detectives were called to the scene to process all evidence and conduct interviews to determine what had taken place. There is no threat to the public and the investigation is continuing.

The deceased have been identified as Molly R. Barlow, Phyllis J. Versteeg and 

Duran Barlow.

The Webster County Sheriff’s Office was assisted at the scene by the Fort Dodge Police Department, the Iowa State Patrol, Badger Fire Department, Clare Fire Department, the Fort

Dodge Fire Department, the Webster County Attorney’s Office and the Webster County Medical Examiner’s Office.
