A 43-year-old woman who neighbors say left her boyfriend and moved in with her brother was shot to death Friday night in a mobile home park just outside of Cedar Rapids.
The woman’s ex-boyfriend was found dead near Mount Vernon and authorities say he killed himself.
Tammy Jo Tomberlin was shot to death at about 7:30 Friday night. Her brother, 48-year-old Duane Roy Tomberlin, was also shot, as was another man. Both men were taken to area hospitals. Authorties say their injuries are not life-threatening.
Witnesses in the mobile home park told police they saw 42-year-old Christopher Allen Vogt leave the site of the shooting in a red pickup truck. Investigators used the signal from Vogt’s cell phone to track the truck and, about four hours later, authorities found the vehicle in a farm field near Mount Vernon. Vogt was dead, of a self-inflicted gunshot wound.
