A 12 hour standoff between Lincoln police and a 51 year old man with a high powered rifle is over. When SWAT members entered the home they found the man dead. Lincoln Officer Katie Flood says that during the standoff the man fired several rounds from his rifle, possibly at officers.
A woman who lives three houses down from the suspect told us, she found the situation frightening. Morgan Ballard says she thought they had a friendly neighborhood, where she felt safe.
Ballard said that she really didn’t know the suspect very well, saying she didn’t see him outside very often.
Lincoln public schools cancelled classes for two schools in the area because of the standoff.
