    Iowa DNR conservation officers responded to a fatal hunting incident on Sunday, December 9, 2018 around 4:30pm near Lake Red Rock.

    The incident happened at Robert’s Creek Park on the north side of Lake Red Rock. Blake E. Schroder, 23, or Leighton, Iowa, was fatally struck by a round believed to be fired from a member of his large hunting party.

    The investigation into the shooting is on-going at this time.

    An autopsy is pending on Schroder at the Iowa Office of the State Medical Examiner in Ankeny.

    DNR officials remind hunters of the following safety tips:

    Treat every firearm as if it is loaded
    Always keep the muzzle pointed in a safe direction
    Know your intended target and its surroundings
    Do not touch the trigger of the gun until you’re ready to shoot
