Otzi bled to death

Recent analysis shows that the Iceman Otzi bled to death from an arrow in his shoulder which cut an artery, and was shot from the back.

He had a last meal in the valley below. As he would have bled to death quickly, he may have been shot near the place he died. The arrow was broken off while he was still alive, either by himself, a colleague or an enemy trying to hid the evidence of whose arrow it was.
