Update: Woman Says Husband Fired Shots Outside Home, Not Inside

By  | 

A southeast Nebraska man accused of firing a gun outside his home and in his garage with his wife present turned himself in to the Gage County Sheriff Tuesday morning.

43-year-old William Price of rural Cortland was taken into custody and is currently being processed on the outstanding warrants for his arrests.

Authorities were called to the house south of town around 7 p.m. Friday, after Price's wife told authorities that he had brandished a gun. Price's wife escaped, and officers surrounded the home overnight.

A Nebraska State Patrol robot searched the house on Saturday, but failed to locate Price. Authorities believe he left before they arrived in a gray 2007 Honda Pilot.

Authorities estimate that Price fired 20 to 30 shots. His wife, Cindy Price said her husband never fired inside the house, but did shoot in the garage and outside the home. Her three children were home at the time as well, but everyone was able to get out safely.

Cindy Price said she was scared that night, but never felt like her husband was going to come after or shoot at the family. She said her family is working on moving forward and getting her husband the help he needs.
