— Officials investigating the weekend shooting death of an Oskaloosa man are meeting today with people they hope will provide information about the events leading to the shooting.

No arrests have been made.

Jefferson County Sheriff Roy G. Dunnaway said this morning that the investigation has produced names of people officials believe can provide key information surrounding the circumstances before the shooting.

"We have some more people to interview this morning who knew what happened leading up to this," Dunnaway said.

The Jefferson County Sheriff's Department and two Kansas Bureau of Investigation agents are investigating the death of Randall Lane Malbrough.

Malbrough, 31, died early Saturday morning outside the Leavenworth County Co-op Assn. mill north of Oskaloosa. An autopsy conducted by Dr. James Bridgens, a pathologist from Kansas City, Mo., indicated that Malbrough died of a single gunshot wound through the heart.

Dunnaway said a revolver believed to be have been used in the shooting has been recovered.

The incident appears to have been the result of an ongoing dispute between the victim and the shooter, Dunnaway said. He said 10 people were at the scene when the shooting took place.
