Autopsy Complete On Man Shot Outside Lincoln Chic-fil-A

Lincoln-(KFOR Oct. 11)-The autopsy is complete on 48-year-old Joseph Cimino who died after crashing his vehicle into a Lincoln Chic-fil-A on Tuesday.

The autopsy revealed Cimino’s cause of death as three bullet wounds to the chest. Police are still awaiting results of the toxicology report.

Cimino was shot and killed by a Burlington Northern Special Agent after making threatening remarks to employees and customers in the restaurant at SouthPointe Pavillions. He was in possession of a stun gun during the conflict.

According to police, Cimino caused a scene inside the Chick-fil-A, was escorted outside, then crashed his 2018 Ram Pickup into the side of the building. He then got out, began yelling, and was eventually shot and killed by the special agent.

Investigators searched his apartment at 8420 Hollynn Lane with a warrant on Tuesday, October 8th. They found two wireless security cameras, one computer tower, one smartwatch, and photographs.

The apartment manager at Cimino’s complex told police that Cimino told her the day before the shooting that he wished someone would just kill him, and that he was awaiting his “final mission” but had “not gotten his orders yet.”
