ADAMS, Neb. -- A standoff in southeast Nebraska ended after several hours in Adams. 

Officers from multiple authorities had several blocks sectioned off in Adams around a house in the 800 block of Elm Street. 

Authorities initially responded to the house around 8:00 Monday night. The Nebraska State Patrol, Gage County Sheriff’s Office, Lancaster County Sheriff’s Office and Johnson County Sheriff’s Office were all on the scene. A light armored vehicle was present, as was a K-9 unit and a SWAT team. Police could be heard talking through a bullhorn.

At approximately 9:50 p.m. Monday, the Gage County Sheriff’s Office requested the assistance of the NSP SWAT Team in response to an ongoing situation on Elm Street in Adams. Deputies had previously responded to a domestic violence incident after receiving a 911 call from the victim. The victim reported that her husband, 40-year-old Thomas Sharp, had hit her several times and pointed a gun at her. When he pointed the gun at her, she pushed it away, but the man fired the weapon, striking the victim in the hand, according to NSP. At that point she was able to flee the home to safety. Her children were also able to flee the home unharmed.

After the NSP SWAT Team was activated, numerous attempts were made to contact Sharp. No contact was established, and the SWAT team breached the front door using a light armored vehicle. Shortly thereafter, Sharp was located inside the home, deceased from a self-inflicted gunshot wound. The entire incident lasted approximately nine hours.

The reporting victim was transported to Bryan Medical Center West Campus in Lincoln for treatment of non-life-threatening injuries. The children are with family. No law enforcement officers were injured.

The Gage County Attorney has requested that NSP investigate the incident. NSP was assisted by the Gage County Sheriff’s Office, the Lancaster County Sheriff’s Office, Adams Volunteer Fire and Rescue, Lincoln Fire and Rescue, and the Gage County Attorney’s Office. The investigation is ongoing.
