ONAWA, Iowa (AP) — Authorities are still trying to unravel a shooting in Onawa. Officials say 32-year-old Darren Hieber initially told police he was shot in the leg Sunday night while interrupting a burglary at his business. Police now believe Hieber was shot by an employee. Assistant Monona County Attorney Christyne Martens says that it appears there was no burglary. She says authorities also don’t believe a confrontation or altercation preceded the shooting. Martens says no charges have been filed and no additional suspects are being sought. Hieber was taken to Burgess Health Center in Onawa. The hospital could not provide information on his condition.
