SEWARD, Neb. (AP)

        Authorities say a sheriff's deputy has shot a man who tried to take the deputy's vehicle.

        The shooting occurred a little after 9 a.m. Saturday, when the deputy arrived to investigate a reported home invasion about 4 miles (7 kilometers) southeast of Seward.     

        The Seward County Sheriff's Office says the deputy spotted a man who matched the suspect's description and says the man became violent when the deputy confronted him. The Sheriff's Office says the man tried to flee in the deputy's vehicle and didn't comply with the deputy's orders even after being shot twice by the deputy's stun gun.     

        The Sheriff's Office says the deputy finally used a regular firearm to shoot the man, who's been hospitalized.

        The man's been identified as Cody Nielsen, of York. The deputy's name hasn't been released.

    Nebraska State Patrol releases dashcam footage of accident

    A close call caught on a state trooper's dashcam. Take a look, a trooper comes up to a bridge on Highway 34 in southwest Nebraska. At the same time, a semi comes the other way. That semi crossed over the center line, poised for a head-on crash, but the trooper, quick thinking, swerved to avoid him. He was still side-swiped, but the trooper suffered only minor injuries. The semi driver went to the hospital. This is the third crash involving a state patrol car in the past week. A...More >>
