LINCOLN–(KFOR July 27)–An 18-year-old man suspected to be involved in a shooting Sunday night at 27th and “Y” Streets has turned himself in, now facing attempted second-degree murder charges.
On Monday, Lincoln Police say Tony Bush, Jr. turned himself in at the Lancaster County Jail around 10pm Sunday, just four hours after the shooting happened. Bush is also accused of use of a weapon to commit a felony and tampering with evidence.
Officer Erin Spilker said responding officers showed up to the scene to find a 31-year-old man covered in blood and was unresponsive. CPR was performed and Lincoln Fire and Rescue took the victim to the hospital.
Through video evidence, Spilker says they found out a car pulled up along side the car the victim was in. Shots were fired, leaving the victim in critical condition. Bush apparently was in the car that pulled up along side the victim’s car.
The car then took off and police say they found out Bush got rid of the gun. Spilker adds this was not a random incident.
Lincoln Police are investigating a shooting from Sunday evening near 27th and “Y”, where a man apparently suffered a gunshot wound to his chin.
However, those details were still being investigated.
We’re expected to get more details at the daily media briefing coming up Monday morning.
