MASON CITY – Police are saying two men were shot in Mason City this past weekend.

At approximately 10:00 p.m. on Saturday, April 10th officers responded West Park at 1st and North Jackson on a report of gunshots being fired. When officers arrived there was an unoccupied car in the area that had crashed into a utility pole and no one was located in the area of the park.

At about the same time officers arrived at the park one victim arrived at Mercy One North Iowa with a gunshot wound. About 20 minutes after the original report of shots fired a second gunshot victim arrived at the emergency room with a gunshot wound.

Also during the investigation a second vehicle was located near the intersection of 6th and North Federal with several holes from gunfire. It’s believed that vehicle had been driven to that location from West Park and abandoned.

The shooting victims were both males and in their early 20’s. One has been released from the hospital and the other is still recovering at the hospital.

Anyone with information about the shooting should contact the Mason City Police Department.

      Why would the owner delete all comments? He uses site views data for revenue. By eliminating comments, he reduces vews. That doesn’t make sense.

    Isn’t it strange that under Trump we had almost no shootings and under Biden they are popping up all over.

    Everyone can joke and pretend it’s just Another day but this is getting very scary and dangerous for American citizens….We don’t have leaders who care to protect us or make wise decisions for our futures…they choose to put us in harm’s way about every turn…Murdering babies and sexual perversion are glorified and God being removed and history being distorted and erased…what future for the next generation…?..Tax us to death and run our economy into the ground…Do any of you feel they care about you or this country?

    So, can we ask the pd for more information before they ask us to do their job for them AGAIN. the mcpd standard response to violent crime they cant solve is to tell us they know nothing, we are safe and please tell them information so they dont have to do their jobs. Where the “victims” white or black, I’ll venture to guess black and that indicates the shooter(s) are black. How old are little details like those can help the community stay safer. Instead we dint get shit. The mcpd isnt under staffed it’s just staffed by useless dipshits who dont know what their job is. Since the 1st we have had how many violent incidents in town? Those are the ones that ppl bother to report anymore. We hear gunshots all the time in mason (yes they are guns not fireworks) what’s the point of calling it in anymore? Mcpd wont know shit and wont bother to release vital details to the community. Not releasing vital info forces is to guess. My guess, and everyone else’s is going to be the worthless wcumbag garbage from chicago and Detroit. That guess is probably spot on. Stay away from the liquor stores and keep your waits about you when black men are near, they are the problem in this town.

      I agree with a lot of what you say. But, I know for a fact that the PD is down about 25% in staffing. Why, because nobody wants to be a cop anymore, would you? They go out and do their job, arrest law breakers and the courts put them back on the street. Don’t get me started on the respect that they don’t get, exactly like what’s in your comment. If you can do better, there are openings in the PD, apply and lets see how far you can go. It’s easier to piss and moan about something then it is to stand up and change it.

        The police cant change this. They are the entity that deals with it when it wasn’t dealt with societally and civically. Maybe crack down on the government programs and make sure the ppl applying for benefits are the only ppl benefiting from them, make sure they aren’t selling narcotics ect. Maybe crack down on landlords that rent to people they know represent an element of society that is dangerous and unpredictable. Maybe we need better opportunities and more vocational services for poor ppl. None of what you say or I say matters because in the end we need to force parents to parent. I had parents…. never felt inclined to participate in a violent crime, steal or commit any other rediculous crimes habitually or otherwise. Most ppl with parents turn out like that. You are right though. The court system in thos county could shape up. When the guy who shoots ppl on north Penn only gets two years of PROBATION…. somethings very broken and ppl need to be held accountable. This county has sent young adults to prison for crimes that dont hurt or endanger anyone all the while letting violent criminals and sexual predators off the hook. You have a solution for that? Because actually enforcing laws and keeping dangerous individuals locked up seems like it may help solve some of masons issue. Whoever decided to build a halfway house in town really didnt do anyone any favors either… mason city has and always will be a total mess.

          You say “Maybe crack down on landlords that rent to people they know represent an element of society that is dangerous and unpredictable.” Tell me how a landlord would know who is dangerous and unpredictable? Would it be the skin color of the prospective renter or where he or she came from? Or maybe even better yet, their education level?

        Says the tough guy making assumptions on the internet, where do I indicate I’d DO anything? Moron. The point is with more details we would be able to make better choices and maybe avoid people who fit the description at the very least. This type of violence puts everyone at risk. What if someone was walking by the river and caught a stray round or someone in their home? Anyone can be a victim of rounds flying where they weren’t intended, the type of people who are willing to engage in gun play in the streets are probably very capable of extending their violence beyond personal drama, what would they have done to a witness? I just simply think its bullshit that we get told they dont know who the shooter is, what the motive is or where the suspect could be and then say there is no ongoing threat to the community. You talk about me being a keyboard warrior based on some assumption you made that I have any interest in policing this sewer which is stupid and insane. I’m just interested in not becoming a victim of section 8 gun crime. Is there anything wrong with that? I’m interested in none of us that were born and raised here becoming a victim of a transplant who supposedly moved here for a better life. I suppose I just want to be able to feel safe in my community and know that everyone else does too. I’m doing everything I can to leave this town like everyone else with the opportunity to do so is. For my safety. You stay here and condone the violence by attacking individuals for expecting basic municipal function and mason city lacks that on almost every level. Yes, you stay and enjoy the meth heads and the gangsta wannabes, the heroin and the crack. The theft and violence. I’m leaving the blue zone and never looking back. You must like it here?

      Interesting analysis. But regardless of their race, no one has a right to rob anyone of their property, or to threaten the lives of innocent US citizens.

      As to avoiding liquor stores in and around Mason City? Well, speaking for myself, I’ll NEVER do that.

      Any time I decide to drive to any liquor store to buy bourbon, gin, or smokes, or beer, or whatever I want, I’ll be in such establishments.

      And if anyone, of ANY race, tries to harass me, they’ll get one warning to stay away. If they advance, I’ll introduce them to a loaded .380, with the safety flicked off, and warn them again.

      And if they continue w/ their nonsense, and attempt to steal from me, or strike me, they’ll be dead about one second later.

      Good riddance.

          Even the Christian bible allows taking life in defense of your own. How would you deal with a violent drug addict that attacks you outside a liquor store? Offer to pay for their next bag of meth and get them a tall boy of hurricane? Get into a fist fight with someone who’s blood probably Carries more disease than a wuhan bat? You ever seen a junkie run? They are quick, quicker than you. So what’s your solution? Or are you offended because you’re a crackhead and dont like the idea of ppl not being victims?
