Fort Dodge man arrested in connection with Goldfield shooting
GOLDFIELD — A Fort Dodge man has been arrested in connection with a shooting that left a Goldfield man injured earlier this month.
Eagle Grove police were called on the afternoon of June 4th to 722 North Pine Street after neighbors reported hearing gunshots coming from the home. 38-year-old Rich Crawford was shot in the chest by a male, with Crawford being found by authorities walking on a gravel road in rural Goldfield. Crawford was taken to the Iowa Specialty Hospital in Clarion, where he was treated and released.
The Iowa Division of Criminal Investigation in a news release issued Monday says 48-year-old Bobby Hernandez was arrested the following day in Fort Dodge and charged with willful injury and possession of a firearm as a felon.
Hernandez is in custody in the Wright County Jail.
