BLOOMFIELD (KWWL) -

A Bloomfield man was found dead of a gunshot wound early Monday morning, but police say the public isn't in danger.

Clinton Gus Leedom, 49, of Bloomfield was found by police at around 1:21 a.m. Monday morning after the Wapello County Sheriff's Office received a 911 call about a shooting, according to the Iowa Department of Public Safety.

Leedom apparently died from an unspecified gunshot wound, according to DPS.

His body was found at 4367 91st Ave. in Wapello County, but records show Leedom lived at 11202 Nichol Ave. in Bloomfield, according to DPS.

DPS said the incident appears to be isolated, however, and say the public is not in danger.

Leedom's body was sent to the State Medical Examiner's Office in Ankeny for an autopsy, scheduled to be performed Tuesday, according to DPS.

The Iowa Division of Criminal Investigation and the DCI Crime Lab Team are assisting DPS and the sheriff's office in the investigation.
