When officers arrived on the scene, they discovered 36-year-old Dustin Frondle of Cedar Rapids had been shot in the chest. KCRG reports Frondle was found in the intersection of the street. Officers provided CPR but Frondle was declared dead at the scene.

The Cedar Rapids Police Department believes, based on their initial investigation, that it's an isolated incident. The investigation into the shooting continues.

If confirmed to be a homicide, Frondle would be the 6th murder victim in Cedar Rapids this year, and the third this month. 35-year-old Nicole Owens and 25-year-old Michael Valentine were both shot and killed at the Taboo Nightclub and Lounge on April 10. Timothy Rush has been charged with 2nd-degree murder in Owens' death while Dimione Jamal Walker has been charged with 1st-degree murder in the shootings.
