Wellsburg Man Dies Of Gunshot Wound Monday
Dana Niehaus, 22, of Wellsburg, died of a gunshot wound to the stomach Monday morning at a Hardin county farmstead.
According to Hardin County Sheriff Loren Goodknight, at approximately 10 a.m. Monday morning his office was notified of an apparent gunshot victim approximately five miles southeast of Eldora.
Grundy County Sheriff Rick Penning had been pursuing the Niehaus vehicle southbound on S-75 from Highway 175 when the vehicle pulled over into a farmstead driveway in Hardin County. Sheriff Penning had just completed a motorist assist prior to the pursuit.
When Penning approached the Niehaus vehicle, he found the 22-year-old man had sustained a gunshot wound to the stomach, apparently from a weapon found in the vehicle.
Niehaus was alone in the vehicle at the time.
Medical personnel were summoned and transported the victim to Marshalltown Hospital where Niehaus was pronounced dead.
The investigation is continuing by the Division of Criminal Investigation and the Hardin County Sheriff's Dept.
Services for Niehaus are pending at Doyen-Abels Funeral Home in Wellsburg.
