UPDATED: Daniel Tveidt, 35, died after showing up at Chelatchie Prairie store after being shot multiple times
Details of a fatal shooting that took place Saturday in North Clark County were released Monday morning by the Clark County Sheriff’s Office.
Thirty-five-year-old Daniel Tveidt died after being shot multiple times. Tveidt showed up at the Chelatchie Prairie store in Amboy Saturday evening after being shot. Clark County Sheriff’s Office deputies responded and Life Flight was activated and responded to the area, but Tveidt died from his injuries prior to Life Flight’s arrival.
CCSO deputies learned that the shooting took place approximately nine miles east of the Chelatchie Prairie store. Suspect information was developed, and the suspect, 32-year-old Cody Nutter, was arrested at his residence. The Clark County Regional SWAT team assisted in the apprehension of Nutter.
Nutter was booked into the Clark County Jail on Murder II and was scheduled to make his first appearance in court on Monday morning (Oct. 19).
According to probable cause documents obtained by Clark County Today, Tveidt and his friends had been watching the sun set in the mountain foothills near Chelatchie Prairie.
During their return journey they happened upon Nutter, target shooting in the failing light. For reasons unknown, Tveidt stopped his vehicle near the line of fire and charged the shooter, Nutter, according to the documents.
Tveidt was struck by multiple shots, and Nutter fled the scene, leaving behind an army rucksack with his name on it.
The Clark County Major Crimes Unit is investigating and anyone with information on this homicide is asked to contact Det. Justin Messman at (564) 397-2051.
A GoFundMe has been set up for the family members of Tveidt, including his children.
