One man is dead after suffering a self-inflicted gunshot wound this morning during a domestic incident in Lincoln.
Lincoln Police Captain Jim Thoms says an armed man entered the home of a woman in the 100 block of Blue Flame Road about 2:30 this morning. The suspect was the woman’s estranged husband.
Thoms tells us, Police were able to get the two kids out of the home quickly. The suspect barricaded himself in a bedroom with the woman. He then allowed the woman to leave the room after police and SWAT negotiations.
Then during further negotiations officers heard a single gunshot and entered to find the man with a self-inflicted gun shot wound to the head. The 22-year-old man was taken to Bryan LGH West Hospital where he was later pronounced dead.
