FORT DODGE – A man is behind bars, charged with two counts of murder after a recent shooting in Fort Dodge left two men dead.

According to a statement from Fort Dodge police, in the days following the events of early Monday morning, investigators with the Fort Dodge Police Department and the Iowa Division of Investigation began working tirelessly to reach a resolution for the Rhodes family and all of those affected by this incident. Over the last several days, investigators have been following up on numerous leads stemming from information being provided by community members and other investigative leads. As a result of those efforts put forth by both the community and investigators, Tanner J. King, 28 of Fort Dodge, was taken into custody late Thursday evening, in Fort Dodge, on the following charges:

• Murder in the First Degree —2 counts (A Felony)
• Attempt to Commit Murder-1 count (B Felony)

During the investigation into the double homicide, it was discovered that at least one shot was fired at a third victim, identified as Cletio R. Clark, 28 of Fort Dodge. As a result of that information, the charge of Attempt to Commit Murder was also filed in this case. Mr. Clark was not injured.

Mr. King is currently being held in the Webster County Jail and his scheduled to make his initial appearance in Webster County Magistrate Court at 9:00 A.M. on Friday, October 26. Booking photo requests of Mr. King can be directed to the Webster County Jail. As with all cases, Mr. King is presumed innocent until proven guilty in a court of law.

Although an arrest has been made, the investigation is still on-going. As a result, we will not be releasing any specific details of the investigation at this time. Investigators are continuing to follow up on information, and we continue to encourage those who may have information to contact the police department or Crime Stoppers.

Throughout this investigation, the Fort Dodge Police Department has been assisted by the Iowa Division of Criminal Investigation, the Iowa Division of Criminal Investigation’s Criminalistics Laboratory Crime Scene Team, the Iowa State Patrol, the Webster County Sheriff’s Office, the Fort Dodge Fire Department, and the Webster County Attorney’s Office.

    Another career criminal, he goes from domestic abuse, to arson, to murder. I’d bet that there is some drug dealing in there somewhere. Not much left, except suicide.
