Dispute about barking dog turns violent in Lincoln; two shot

A long-simmering dispute between two neighbors about a barking dog turned violent in Lincoln, leading to a shooting that has left at least one dead.

Few details are being released at this time by authorities.

Lincoln Police Captain Anthony Butler said police rushed to a northwest Lincoln neighborhood after neighbors heard gunshots.

“As officers arrived on the scene, they did locate a male outside, lying in a grassy area,” Butler stated. “As officers continued to come to the area, they got more information in regards to a black vehicle leaving.”

Police pursued the vehicle. The suspect wrecked when he hit a utility pole. He died of a gunshot wound to the head.

The victim, 28-year-old Isaac Durr, was taken to Bryan LGH West hospital in Lincoln. His condition is unknown.
