Cedar Rapids Man Found Shot in Street Monday Morning
The Cedar Rapids Police Department is investigating an overnight shooting on the city's southwest side that killed one.
According to a media release from the Cedar Rapids Police Department, officers were called to the scene near 12th Avenue and Auburn Drive SW just before 3:15 a.m. Monday morning. That response followed a call to the Joint Communications Agency.
When officers arrived on the scene, they discovered 36-year-old Dustin Frondle of Cedar Rapids had been shot in the chest. KCRG reports Frondle was found in the intersection of the street. Officers provided CPR but Frondle was declared dead at the scene.
The Cedar Rapids Police Department believes, based on their initial investigation, that it's an isolated incident. The investigation into the shooting continues.
If confirmed to be a homicide, Frondle would be the 6th murder victim in Cedar Rapids this year, and the third this month. 35-year-old Nicole Owens and 25-year-old Michael Valentine were both shot and killed at the Taboo Nightclub and Lounge on April 10. Timothy Rush has been charged with 2nd-degree murder in Owens' death while Dimione Jamal Walker has been charged with 1st-degree murder in the shootings.
