LINCOLN, Neb. -- The Lincoln Police Department is investigating a shooting that happened Tuesday night.
LPD said the shooting happened near 22nd and Dudley St. Sept. 20 around 9:45 p.m.
It was reported that an officer was driving in the area when an 18-year-old ran up to the officer's cruiser and told them he was shot.
While officers were providing the 18-year-old aid, they said a 19-year-old ran out from a nearby house and approached them. He was found to also have a gunshot wound.
