U.S. Game Warden Edgar Lindgren was shot and killed while checking the licenses of three hunters after observing the men shoot a bird out of season at Big Lake in Council Bluffs, Iowa.

When he asked to see their hunting licenses one of the men shot him in the chest with a shotgun. The other two hunters shot him at point-blank range as he lay bleeding on the ground. He succumbed to his wounds four days later.

All three of the suspects were convicted of second-degree murder and sentenced to life.

Game Warden Lindgren was survived by his wife and infant son.
