On Wednesday, May 25, 2022, at approximately 7:30 p.m., a 17-year-old male arrived at a local hospital with a grazing gunshot wound to the left side of his head. The victim had been transported to the hospital by a friend. The injury is not considered life threatening. Officers determined the victim and some of his friends met up with a group of individuals at Seacrest Field, 7300 A Street, following a social media feud between the groups. At some point, a male wearing a mask over his face exited a vehicle with a handgun and shot towards the vehicle the victim was in, striking both the vehicle and the victim.
A 15- year-old male was developed as a suspect and was taken into custody following the execution of a search warrant at his residence. Due to the involvement of firearms, the Lincoln Police Department SWAT Team was utilized. Ultimately the 15-year-old was lodged in the Lancaster County Youth Services Center for Second Degree Assault, Use of a Weapon to Commit a Felony and Discharging a Firearm into a Vehicle.
