LPD responds to multiple shootings Saturday morning

LINCOLN, Neb. (KLKN) — The Lincoln Police Department and other first responders spent Saturday morning engaged in calls related to gun violence.

Ultimately, one teen died.

According to LPD, at 10:19 a.m., officers were called to a home near 18th Street and Euclid Avenue, where the 18-year-old victim was found shot in the upper torso.

Police later arrested 29-year-old Armon Rejai on the charge of second-degree homicide.

Neighbor Susan Wilkinson said she heard the confrontation between the two.

“[The victim] comes from the back alley,” she said. “Pounding on the door, ‘Lemme in, lemme in, lemme in.”

Wilkinson said she heard the gun and the sound of the victim grunting.

Around 8:45 a.m., rescue officials responded to a call at 1400 Old Farm Road, where a 42-year-old man had been shot in the foot.

Police say that 19-year-old Larry Harris fired the shot but that it’s still unknown why the interaction happened.

Harris was arrested near the scene on suspicion of possessing a stolen firearm and a controlled substance.

The victim is being treated at a local hospital with injuries that are not life-threatening.

Both cases are being investigated, and LPD and Lincoln Crime Stoppers urge anyone with information on either case to come forward.
