Sarpy County Sheriff’s office responded to a shooting Wednesday afternoon at 18210 Pflug Road near Springfield. There were four individuals at the resident where the shooting happened and all four were related. 56 year old Jeff Hayes was located on the ground outside the home deceased. The others at the scene were his brother, 52 year old Eric Hayes, his niece, 25 year old Ashley Hayes and her brother, 22 year old Cameron Hayes.
The investigation revealed that Jeff Hayes had been living in the house occupied by his niece but was told to leave. He was living on the property in a camper. Reports show that Jeff Hayes became aggressive toward his family members and pulled out a handgun and fired several shots at the others. No one was hit but bullets struck the residence. Cameron Hayes then retrieved a gun from his sister and fired one shot at Jeff Hayes. He then turned around and fired several shots at Cameron Hayes who returned fire striking Jeff Hayes. Authorities say that stopped the threat posed by Jeff Hayes.
The three family members were questioned by Sarpy County Sheriff’s Department. An autopsy on Jeff Hansen was conducted today. All the witness statements and evidence was turned over to the Sarpy County Attorney’s Office for their review and discretion for any potential criminal charges in this shooting death.
