Man Held In Home

A man was held hostage in his home, after he came home to discover a burglary in progress. It happened at near 88th and Holdredge. The burglar held him at gunpoint and then tied him up. He was able to escape, and eventually ran over to a neighbors house to call for help. The burglar escaped, sparking a manhunt that included the sheriff's office, the swat team, the Nebraska State Patrol's chopper, and the Lincoln Police. They got a lead after a passer-by saw someone with a gun in this area… The man matched the suspects description… Lincoln police eventually took this man into custody about three hours later. Authorities say they're fairly confident the man in custody is the man they were looking for. Officials have not yet released the suspect's name.
