Iowa officials say man shot to death, woman arrested
AKRON, Iowa (AP) - Authorities in northwest Iowa say one person is dead and another has been arrested in a shooting near Akron.
The Plymouth County Sheriff's Office says the shooting was reported at 12:15 a.m. Friday. Arriving deputies found a man suffering from a gunshot wound. He was taken by ambulance to a Sioux City hospital, where he was pronounced dead. An autopsy has been ordered.
Investigators deemed the shooting a homicide and say others in the home witnessed the shooting.
Police arrested 33-year-old Becky Hebert, of Akron, around noon Friday in LeMars without incident. She has been charged with second-degree murder. Officials say Hebert and the victim had been arguing before the shooting.
Hebert could not be reached Friday for comment, and it was unclear whether she had an attorney.
