Youth, 18, Shot On Ride Thru Fairgrounds Gary Nelson, 18-year-old son of Mr. and Mrs. Vernon Nelson of Britt, was listed as being in fair condition at Hancock County Memorial Hospital at Britt after he had been shot in the abdomen at the Hancock county fairgrounds. An investigation was being conducted by Hancock Sheriff L.M. (Dutch) Brower, Britt police and the office of County Attorney Curtis Riehm. One official identified the man who did the shooting as George Campbell, 70, fairgrounds custodian. Nelson was in the company of five other Britt youths at the time of the shooting, officers said. Two of the youths, Nelson and Jerry Weiskamp, were riding at the fairgrounds on motorcycles when Weiskamp reported to officers that two shots had been fired at him. One shot went over his head, another hit the ground near a foot. The two returned to town, gathered some friends, and returned to the fairgrounds with an automobile. Weiskamp told Police Chief Pete Sluik that he was following Nelson on the motorcycle when he heard Nelson scream and saw him bring his bike to a stop. The youths who had been following in the car got the wounded youth into the car and took him directly to the hospital where he received emergency treatment. Sluik said the shooting was reported to him by Harry Larson. At the hospital, it was discovered that a .22 caliber bullet had penetrated all the way through Nelson's body, entering through the lower left side and piercing his stomach and liver and passing out through the other side of his body. No arrests had been made nor charges filed pending completion of the investigation. Tuesday, Oct. 10, 1967 Algona, (la.)
