Man accused of second-degree murder in northeast Nebraska shooting
LINCOLN, Neb. (KLKN) – A man has been accused of second-degree murder in the shooting of his co-worker in rural Cedar County.
On Wednesday, 20-year-old David Phillips got into an argument with a co-worker at a job site north of Hartington.
The Nebraska State Patrol thinks Phillips then shot the victim, who was later pronounced dead at a nearby hospital.
Phillips was arrested on suspicion of second-degree murder, possession of a stolen firearm and use of a deadly weapon to commit a felony, the patrol said Thursday.
The Louisiana native has since been lodged in the Cedar County Jail.
An investigation is ongoing.
Hartington is about 55 miles west of South Sioux City.
