Lincoln Murder Investigation

Lincoln police are investigating a deadly shooting that happened around 9:40 this morning at 27th and Holdrege.

Captain Danny Reitan says Lincoln 911 started receiving multiple calls that a person was down in the street. An officer in the area confirmed the situation. Lincoln Fire and Rescue were called and they found the man deceased on the southwest corner of the intersection.

Captain Reitan says, "From the information we received from multiple witnesses, there was a white car with front end damage that fled westbound on Holdrege. It had two male suspects inside."

They have not yet been able to identify the victim. Once that happens, they will notify next of kin before releasing the victim's name.

Traffic in that area may be impacted due to the investigation. The State Patrol provided assistance by air in looking for the suspects.

Clinton Elementary School was in lockout status.
