The Nebraska State Patrol says a second person has died as the result of a shooting in Superior, Nebraska Thursday afternoon.
That person had been airlifted from Superior to the Bryan Health West Campus in Lincoln with life-threatening injuries.
The Nebraska State Patrol, with assistance from the Nuckolls County Sheriff’s Office, Superior Police Department, and Nuckolls County Attorney’s Office, continues to investigate.
Investigators say state troopers were originally dispatched to an active shooter incident at the "Agrex" Elevator in Superior.
Upon arrival, troopers found one deceased individual and other victims.
The reported shooter was also injured.
The preliminary investigation identifies the shooter as 61-year old Max Hoskinson of Superior.
Hoskinson’s tenure with Agrex had been terminated earlier in the day.
The Patrol says shortly before 2:00 p.m., Hoskinson returned to Agrex with a handgun and opened fire, striking three individuals.
An employee then grabbed a shotgun from an office and returned fire, striking Hoskinson.
One of the victims shot by Hoskinson was pronounced deceased at the scene.
A third victim was treated at a local hospital and released.
Hoskinson was taken to the hospital in Superior and was pronounced deceased.
