Lincoln police say two women in two separate vehicles were shot early Sunday. Both women were rushed to the hospital and one of them died. She was 20. The other woman, who was 23, is still being treated.
The suspect was reportedly a 22-year-old man. Police spotted him and, according to a press release, attempts to verbally and physically stop the male were unsuccessful. A foot pursuit by multiple Lincoln police Officers ensued.
The suspect reportedly pointed a gun at officers and refused the officers’ requests to drop the weapon. Officers fired and killed the suspect. No names were released.
As part of the standard protocol, the two Lincoln police officers have been placed on paid administrative leave.
