MARION COUNTY, Iowa (AP) - A 37-year-old Iowa man was killed while deer hunting this weekend.

The Iowa Department of Natural Resources said Nathan Allen Sharpnack of Winterset was shot Saturday afternoon while hunting with a large group of people in the Red Rock Wildlife Management Area north of Knoxville, Iowa.

Officials said Sharpnack was shot in the torso likely by a member of a large hunting party. Investigators from the Marion County Sheriff’s office are helping the state agency investigate the shooting.

An autopsy will be performed on Sharpnack.
