Published on April 08, 2024

The Lincoln Police Department (LPD) is investigating a homicide that occurred outside a downtown bar on Sunday, April 7, 2024.

Around 3 a.m., police officers and members of Lincoln Fire & Rescue responded to the Royal Hookah Bar and Lounge at 1619 ‘O’ Street on the report of an individual outside who had been shot several times. Upon arrival, officers located 32-year-old Gregory Little of Lincoln with multiple gunshot wounds lying on the sidewalk. He was taken to an area hospital where he died from his injuries.

The preliminary investigation revealed Little and another man got into a fight with other patrons over cutting in line. The bar’s security team intervened, and the disagreement continued outside on the sidewalk. Ultimately, a 24-year-old male security guard discharged his firearm at Little, shooting him in the arm and upper chest.

Several people were detained on Sunday morning for questioning. Everyone has since been released. LPD is asking anyone injured during the incident to come forward to help investigators.

LPD is also asking anyone with information about this incident, including video recordings, to contact Lincoln Police at 402-441-6000 or if you would like to remain anonymous, call Crime Stoppers at 402-475-3600.
