Dundee, IOWA — On January 5, 2012 at approximately 5:07 PM, Delaware County Sheriff’s Office deputies were dispatched to 1749 120th Street in Dundee, Iowa in response to a 911 call. The caller indicated that a female at that location was suffering from a gunshot wound.

Deputies arrived and found Amy Hettinger, age 41, with a gunshot wound. Hettinger later died as a result of that injury.

The Delaware County Sheriff’s Office and the Iowa Division of Criminal Investigation conducted an investigation and it was determined that Hettinger was shot by a 10 year old child inside the house who was handling a loaded handgun at the time. The handgun belonged to another family member.

An autopsy has been conducted by the Iowa State Medical Examiner’s Office and the results of the investigation indicate this was an accidental shooting. The case will be forwarded to the Delaware County Attorney’s Office for review.

    In this grand design of things you secure a B- with regard to hard work. Exactly where you actually confused me ended up being on all the specifics. As people say, details make or break the argument.. And that could not be much more correct here. Having said that, allow me reveal to you just what exactly did work. Your writing is very engaging and that is most likely why I am making the effort to opine. I do not really make it a regular habit of doing that. Secondly, whilst I can certainly notice the leaps in logic you make, I am definitely not certain of exactly how you seem to connect the details which inturn help to make the actual final result. For right now I will subscribe to your point but wish in the foreseeable future you link the dots much better.
