CAMANCHE, Iowa (AP) - Authorities are identifying the person who shot and killed a 22-year-old man in eastern Iowa earlier this week.

The Division of Criminal Investigation said Friday that 25-year-old Derick Carroll has been identified as the shooter who killed Nicholas Luskey in Camanche on Wednesday.

A press release says that Carroll, of Clinton, has been cooperating with investigators and has not been charged in the shooting.

Officers responded to a report of shots fired and found Luskey near a vehicle suffering from a gunshot wound to the chest. He was later pronounced dead at University of Iowa Hospitals and Clinics.

An obituary published Friday says that Luskey lived just across the Mississippi River in Fulton, Illinois. It says that a candlelight vigil is planned for Friday night in Fulton, followed by a visitation Monday in Clinton at First Baptist Church on Monday.
