Lincoln Police Seeking Vehicle After Officer-Involved Shooting

Published on December 17, 2023

The Lincoln Police Department (LPD) is asking for the public’s help locating a vehicle after an officer-involved shooting during a traffic stop.

On Sunday, December 17, at 9:40 a.m., LPD conducted a traffic stop in the area of N. 19th and Knox Streets. The driver of a white sedan fled the stop, ramming into a parked vehicle and driving over large landscaping rocks in the process. The officer discharged their service weapon during the event as the vehicle was driving toward their location. The suspect is not believed to be injured.

The officer who shot at the suspect was not injured. They have been put on administrative leave which is standard procedure after an officer-involved shooting. At this time, LPD is not releasing the name of the officer involved. Crime scene investigators continue to gather evidence and review body-worn camera video.

Officers are attempting to locate a 2006-2011 white Hyundai Azera that likely has damage to the rear bumper and front end. The vehicle has in-transits.  Anyone who observes a vehicle of this description is asked to call our non-emergency number at 402-441-6000 or if you would like to remain anonymous, call Crime Stoppers at 402-475-3600.
