Safety concerns in the wake of shooting

The Des Moines Area Association of Realtors in Iowa is recommending to its members that each brokerage re-examine its safety policies in the aftermath of an agent who was shot and killed while holding an open house on Friday.

Ashley Okland, 27, was shot twice in a model home and later died at an area hospital. Police said on Monday they have no suspects.

Numerous central Iowa brokerages canceled open houses on Sunday, and the area Spring Tour of Homes promotional event was canceled for the weekend, according to the Des Moines Register.
