The Kossuth County Sheriff’s Department is confirming an employee of a bank in Lu Verne was shot and killed Wednesday.
The sheriff’s department says deputies were called to the Security State Bank in Lu Verne at around 8:40 a-m about a possible shooting.
Deputies found 43-year-old Jessica Wieshaar of Algona lying on the sidewalk in front of the bank. They say Wieshaar — who was a bank employee — was dead from an apparent gunshot wound. Video surveillance and witnesses provided deputies with a description of the possible shooter.
A person matching the description was stopped on Interstate 35 and is in custody. That person’s name has not been released.
