State investigators say a man who was shot in Onawa during a burglary, that authorities say was fabricated, has been shot again.
The Iowa Division of Criminal Investigator says 32-year-old Darren Hieber was shot Thursday morning near Mapleton.
Agent Terry Klooster says Hieber suffered a non-life-threatening injury. Klooster says the parties involved in the incident are being interviewed.
Last month, Hieber told police he was shot in the leg while interrupting a burglary at his business.
Monona County authorities say Hieber devised a scheme to have an employee, Barry Chapman, shoot him to garner sympathy from his estranged wife.
Hieber was arrested this week on firearm and conspiracy charges for that alleged incident. Chapman also was charged.
