DES MOINES, Iowa — Police say a Des Moines man found with multiple gunshot wounds Thursday morning in the Drake neighborhood has died.

Officers were called to an apartment building at 3432 Forest Avenue just after 7:00 a.m. on a report that someone had been shot, according to Ahman Douglass with the Des Moines Fire Department. When they arrived they found a 36-year-old man suffering from multiple gunshot wounds.

CPR was performed by officers before fire rescue crews arrived and transported the man to a Des Moines hospital, but Sgt. Paul Parizek said the victim has now died from injuries received in the shooting. The man’s name has not been released by police.

Sgt. Parizek said there were several people present at the apartment when a disagreement broke out and the man was shot. Police found evidence of illegal drug use at the scene.

“Guns and drugs, we’re not surprised when we see them together. And it’s unfortunate that this is usually something that happens when you combine the two,” said Sgt. Parizek.

Investigators are interviewing witnesses and examining evidence in the case. They have not released any information about the identity of a possible suspect but said this was targeted and there is no danger to the general public.

This is Des Moines’ sixth homicide of 2022.
