Authorities say an escaped inmate suspected of shooting a southwest Iowa sheriff's deputy has been killed by a homeowner who said the armed man broke into his house.
The Iowa Department of Public Safety announced that Rodney Long was shot to death early Tuesday. No one else was seriously injured in the shooting in Bedford. Iowa Division of Criminal Investigation Special Agent Mitch Mortveldt says 71-year-old Jerome Mauderly shot Long with a shotgun in the kitchen. In a press conference earlier today Mortveldt said authorities made contact with Mauderly early in the day.
