Lincoln teen grazed by bullet during altercation at football field

(Lincoln, NE) -- A 17 year old is recovering after being grazed by a bullet at a Lincoln football field.

Lincoln Police say around 7:30 Wednesday night, the teen arrived at a local hospital with a grazing gunshot wound to the left side of his head. Police say the victim had been transported to the hospital by a friend. His injury is not considered life threatening. LPD says officers determined that the victim and some of his friends met up with a group of individuals at Seacrest Field, following a social media feud between the groups.

Investigators say at some point a male wearing a mask over his face exited a vehicle with a handgun and shot towards the vehicle the victim was in, shitting both the vehicle and the victim. A 15-year-old was developed as a suspect and was taken into custody after a search warrant was issued for his home. Due to the involvement of firearms, the Lincoln Police Department SWAT Team was utilized.

LPD says the 15-year-old suspect is being held at the Lancaster County Youth Services Center on charges of Second Degree Assault, Use of a Weapon to Commit a Felony and Discharging a Firearm into a Vehicle.
