Shots fired at two people driving in Lincoln last night. It turns out, the gun used was taken during a home burglary last month.
In early December, a family living on Harding in north Lincoln woke up to their home burglarized. Police said three shotguns, two rifles and a flat screen TV were taken.
Sunday night around 10:30, Lincoln Police found one of those rifles. It was a .22 Rifle.
That gun was used in a shooting that led to a police pursuit in south Lincoln.
A 2000 silver Pontiac was following another car shortly after the drivers had a confrontation.
"While they were being followed, someone from the Pontiac fired several times at their vehicle—striking at least once near the rear license plate," Officer Katie Flood said.
Police attempted to stop the car near 17th and Smith, but they say the driver, 21–year–old Kyle Daniels, refused to pull over. Then, police began a chase that ended when the Pontiac crashed into a stop sign.
At least four people fled the scene. Police arrested Daniels, 24–year old Nicole Alvarado, 19–year–old Donte Shields, and 19–year–old Chelan Garcia, near the scene.
When police searched the car, that's when they said they found the gun.
While the rifle was stolen from the Harding home in December, police are unsure if the suspected shooters are the same people who took it.
"We'll always look into whether or not they were involved in the actual burglary bat so often, guns are quickly sold or exchanged following those crimes, so it's difficult to know if they were actually involved in the theft," Flood said.
Luckily, no one was hurt in the mix of it. Police said they're unsure if there were more people in the car. The investigation is ongoing.
