Fatal Shooting

Authorities are investigating after a vehicle belonging to a former Nebraska  football player was involved in a hit-and-run accident.

The accident happened just before 3 a.m. Saturday near 3rd and O St.

According to a Lincoln Police Department accident report, a man was driving on O St. when he saw a fire engine with its lights and siren activated so he stopped his vehicle. At that time, another vehicle – a 2013 GMC Yukon Denali belonging to former Husker Alfonzo Dennard – collided with the back of the man’s car, the report says.

Two witnesses told officers they saw a man – described only as a black male wearing a bright green or grey shirt and dark pants – get out of the Yukon Denali and run from the scene. The man whose vehicle was hit by Dennard’s vehicle was taken to St. Elizabeth hospital to be treated for minor injuries.

Dennard called police the next day to ask about the vehicle, claiming it had been stolen from downtown Lincoln. Dennard denied being the driver at the time of the accident, according to the accident report.

Police told Channel 8 Eyewitness News Dennard formally reported the vehicle stolen around 3:30 a.m. Monday. Dennard told investigators he had left it parked near the state capitol around 10 p.m. Saturday, and discovered it was missing the next day, according to LPD.

Police said no arrests have been made in connection to the hit-and-run.
