Department Investigating Officer Involved Shooting
On November 29, 2015, at 8:47 p.m., officers with the Lincoln Police Department responded to the report of suspicious activity in the area of N. 73rd and Adams. Officers contacted a man found to have a felony arrest warrant. While he was being taken into custody, he produced a firearm. There was a confrontation and exchange of gunfire. That man was fatally wounded and two Lincoln Police Department officers were injured. All three were transported to local hospitals. Both officers are being treated for non-life threatening injuries.
Officers surrounded a nearby home and ultimately took five people into custody. Investigators are still piecing together details and expect to have more information Monday morning.
The identities of those involved are not being released at this time, pending notification of family members.
