Authorities say a Lincoln man is in critical condition after being shot in the head in Grand Island.

Grand Island Police responded just after midnight Thursday to the area of Sycamore and Oklahoma Streets in reference to a shooting.

Officers found a victim with a single gunshot wound to his head. Lifesaving actions were taken by police personnel until emergency medical services could arrive.

Police identified the victim as 31-year-old Gary Zierke III, of Lincoln. Zierke was flown to an Omaha hospital and is in critical condition, GIPD said.

Police say the shooting is believed to be drug related.

A suspect in this case has been identified, and the search for that suspect is still ongoing, according to GIPD. That search is being coordinated with other law enforcement agencies.
