LINCOLN–(KFOR Apr. 7)–Lincoln Police on Friday morning released new information regarding the city’s latest homicide reported late on March 31, which stemmed from a house party at a north-central Lincoln home.
Police Chief Teresa Ewins said 17-year-old Keyshawn McCree was arrested out of state in connection to the shooting death of 18-year-old Damien Brave. Through witness accounts and police work, McCree was tracked down by investigators on Thursday in Detroit, Michigan. Both teens had been fighting over a bag at a house party off of 27th and Fair. Chief Ewins would not elaborate on what was inside the bag.
Brave was hit by gunfire several times and later died at a Lincoln hospital. What led to the shooting and the motive remains under investigation.
Lancaster County Attorney Pat Condon on Friday said that McCree will be charged with first-degree murder, use of a weapon to commit a felony and attempted robbery.
