Two men are dead and another has been hospitalized in shootings that involved a police officer in the northern Nebraska town of Valentine.
Cherry County Attorney Eric Scott says a Valentine police officer responded to a report of a shooting just before midnight Tuesday. Scott says the officer arrived to find 54-year-old Rickey Homan dead, 76-year-old John Malone shot in the face and a suspect at the scene.
Scott says the officer shot and killed the suspect, identified by officials as 47-year-old Alvin Clark, of Valentine.
Authorities say Malone was taken to a Valentine hospital and is listed in stable condition.
Nebraska law requires a grand jury be convened anytime someone dies while in police custody or in the process of being apprehended.
