Shooting victim identified

The Fort Dodge Police Department has identified the victim of Tuesday’s shooting on North Eighth Street as 17-year-old Daiqualis Poe.

“No new information has developed overnight that we are able to share at this time,” Capt. Ryan Gruenberg said in a statement Wednesday morning. Further updates will be shared in upcoming releases, should more details become available.

Poe was shot Tuesday inside the home of 721 N. Eighth St., where 911 was called at approximately 12:45 p.m.

Webster County Medical Examiner Dr. Dan Cole pronounced the unresponsive victim dead on the scene inside of the home at 721 N. Eighth St. The Iowa Division of Criminal Investigation was called in from Des Moines, arriving hours later where they processed the scene to explore the possibilities of how Poe was shot.

Capt. Ryan Gruenberg, of the Fort Dodge Police Department, said the victim suffered a single gunshot wound, but declined to specify where on the body.
