LSO: Task Force vehicles rammed by fleeing teen

LINCOLN, Neb. (KLKN) — Monday, a Nebraska State Patrol (NSP) helicopter helped to locate one teen, who is accused of ramming multiple cruisers four days ago.

The pursuit for the teen, identified as 19-year-old Duop Wiyual Doup, began around 2 p.m. near N. 26th and Dodge Streets.

While running away, officials say Duop was seen throwing a handgun near a hotel on 26th Street. Authorities later found that the handgun was loaded with nine rounds, but did not have any bullets in the chamber.

Following a short chase, Doup was taken into custody for multiple outstanding warrants in addition to other charges.

Around 7:30 Thursday morning, the Metro Area Fugitive Task Force saw a 19-year-old male, who they believed was wanted on several felony warrants- exit a residence near N. 48th and Vine streets.

The teen’s vehicle was in the outside traffic lane, boxed in by several unmarked cars displaying red and blue lights. As Task Force members approached the vehicle, he put his car in reverse and rammed the Task Force vehicle.

The teen then put it back into drive and struck another Task Force vehicle and the passenger side of a citizen’s Hyundai.

He fled the scene and was not pursued.

No officers or civilians were injured during this event. However, about 6,000 dollars in damage was sustained by the authority’s vehicles, while the Hyundai sustained 900 dollars in damage.

The suspect is believed to be Duop Wiyual Doup, a 19-year-old black male, 6′, 135 lbs.
