Preliminary results from an investigation show a man wounded during an Omaha standoff with officers fired one round from his shotgun. The Douglas County Sheriff's Department says two deputies involved in Monday's incident returned to duty on Thursday.
The standoff at North 141st and Franklin lasted several hours until a deputy shot 36-year-old Lance Wetzel, who remains hospitalized. The sheriff's office says an officer had used a stun gun round on Wetzel when he left his vehicle. But Wetzel grabbed his shotgun and pointed it toward officers. The sheriff's office says a deputy then fired his rifle and hit Wetzel, who fired his shotgun once into the air.
Officers were looking for Wetzel because his wife reported he'd punctured her vehicle's tires and he was wanted on a weapons warrant.
