Humboldt County authorities are investigating the Sunday death of an 18-year-old Dakota City man. Lucas Pflibsen died from a gunshot wound.
Humboldt County Sheriff Dean Kruger said another man was stabbed in the leg in the incident. He was taken to Trinity Regional Medical Center in Fort Dodge where he was treated and later released. The man’s name was not available from the sheriff’s department. No arrests have been made.
Sheriff Kruger said the stabbing occurred early Sunday in Livermore. Pflibsen was shot at about three Sunday morning in a rural area of Humboldt county. Pflibsen was airlifted to Mercy Medical Center in Des Moines where he later died.
An autopsy was to have been performed Monday by the State Medical Examiner’s Office in Des Moines with the results to be released in the next few days.
