FATAL SHOOTING: Ankeny Teen Shot At Apartment

An Ankeny apartment complex remains a crime scene.

Police were called to the Delaware Crossing Apartments just after 5:30 Friday night on a report of a shooting.

When officers arrived, they found an 18 year old female dead from a single gunshot wound.

Two males inside the apartment were taken to the police department for questioning.

That's where one admitted to shooting a handgun which was recovered at the scene.

Police are trying to figure out why the gun was fired and say they aren't ruling out any scenarios.

“At this point, everything is in play. We approach everything from the worse-case scenario and that's where we are right now. We're trying to confirm if this was a criminal act or if it was accidental," said Captain Joe Schaffer from the Ankeny Police Department.

Police are yet to identify the victim.

Neither of the males taken in for questioning have been charged in connection with the shooting.
