State agents are assisting the Wapello County Sheriff's Office in investigating the death of an Ottumwa area man.

The Iowa Division of Criminal Investigation says the sheriff's office received a call just after 1 a.m. Monday to a rural residence four miles southwest of Ottumwa. Deputies found 49-year-old Clinton Gus Leedom unresponsive from a gunshot wound. An autopsy is scheduled at the State Medical Examiner's offices in Ankeny on Tuesday.

Officials say the shooting "appears to be an isolated incident and no future danger appears to be imminent."
