Lincoln Gunfire Linked to Gang Ties

Police in Lincoln are sorting through the city’s latest murder that they’re describing as a gang-related shooting. Investigators say the suspect, Hector Lopez, killed himself as officers closed in.

Police say Lopez fired several shots at officers after the SWAT Team surrounded his mother's northeast Lincoln mobile home. He apparently killed himself after police pumped tear gas into the residence.

The two men had befriended two sisters who lived in an apartment complex approximately two blocks from the state capitol.

Authorities say that both Musito and Lopez were members of rival gangs.
