(May 16 / KFOR Newsroom) — Lincoln Police are looking for two men seen leaving the scene of a fatal shooting  Thursday morning at 27th and Holdrege.

LPD Captain Danny Reitan confirmed for KFOR News that one person  was shot to death.  “Lincoln Fire and Rescue was summoned to render aid, and they found a male subject deceased on the southeast corner of the intersection.”

Reitan said they are following up on reports that two men were involved.  “From the information we received from multiple witnesses, there was a white car with some front end damage that fled westbound on Holdrege that had two male subjects inside.”

The shooting took place just across the street from a Police station, and Reitan said that may help in the investigation.  “We do have some security cameras around the station and we will be reviewing that footage as well.”
