The Lincoln police officers injured in a fatal shooting this weekend have been identified.
Officer Matthew Gilleland was shot and wounded in the scuffle with Zachary Grigsby, who was fatally shot by another officer. Gilleland suffered a gunshot wound to the arm. He is expected to be released from the hospital today.
Officer Angela Morehouse was punched a number of times in the head by Grigsby. She was treated and released at a Lincoln hospital.
The Lincoln Police Department say the two officers confronted Grigsby in a parked car and that as they led him to a police cruiser, Grisby said he wasn’t going back to jail, pulled a gun, and started firing.
A third officer involved in the incident has not been identified.
