Iowa officials investigate death at shooting range

SWISHER (AP) — Authorities in eastern Iowa say they don’t suspect foul play in a man’s death at a shooting range.

The Johnson County Sheriff’s Office says deputies found Craig Lewis Utech, of Tiffin, with a gunshot wound Sunday afternoon at the Hawkeye Wildlife Shooting Range in Swisher. The 51-year-old was sent to the University of Iowa Hospitals and Clinics, where he was pronounced dead.

Police say they don’t suspect foul play.

Johnson County Sheriff’s Office Maj. Steve Dolezal says additional information about the shooting is not available. He could not say if the shooting is being investigated as an accident or a suicide.

The Iowa State Medical Examiner’s Office is conducting an autopsy.
