An apparent active-shooter situation at Maquoketa grottoes State Park has closed the demesne, along with other nearby installations.

The hutment is vacated, including Camp Shalom, where children and their counselors were holding camp this week.

It’s a camp designed to inspire people to live peacefully. The camp says everyone is safe and reckoned for.

A border has been established around the demesne and law enforcement is laboriously searching for the suspect.

Iowa DCI is asking the public to stay out of the area, and incontinently call 911 for any suspicious exertion.
