Woman shot at State Capitol Sunday, possibly related to Trump rally

DES MOINES (KWWL) - The Iowa State Patrol says a woman was shot on the grounds of the Iowa State Capitol Sunday afternoon. Authorities say the woman is expected to survive and there is no active threat to the public.

NBC affiliate WHO-13 News in Des Moines reported that there was a rally for President Trump going on at the Capitol around the same time. Investigators said Sunday they were aware of the rally but didn't know if it was related to the shooting.

In a Sunday night press release, the Iowa Department of Public Safety says the woman was transported to a local hospital and there will be new information released Monday morning.

Sgt. Alex Dinkla with IDPS says no one is under arrest because of the incident at this time. The state patrol and Division of Criminal Investigation are actively investigating the event.
