Update: Police make an arrest in fatal stabbing
LINCOLN, Neb. (KOLN) - Lincoln Police have confirmed to 10/11 NOW that an arrest has been made in connection to a homicide case from Monday night.
Right now, police say more information will be made available by Chief Jeff Bliemeister at the Wednesday morning media briefing, but LPD says there is no ongoing threat to the public at this time.
On Tuesday morning, the department identified the man who died in the stabbing incident.
At 8:37 p.m. Lincoln Police responded to a report of a fight near Goodhue and D Streets, which is between 14th and 16th Streets.
Responding officers found 37-year old Jeremy Lane unresponsive. First responders performed CPR and used an AED. Emergency crews then rushed Lane to a nearby hospital where he was pronounced dead.
LPD said they are investigating this case as a homicide.
Investigators said there was a fight on the sidewalk that led up to the stabbing. Witnesses told LPD while they were in the area, before police got on scene, Lane was fighting with the person of interest before he was stabbed.
A 1011 NOW reporter on scene spoke with a witness who saw the fight and said they were throwing rocks at each other, and ultimately the witness said he decided to call for help.
"I didn't know what else to do. That's why I called the police. I should've called the police when it was actually going on, like when the stabbing happened. I thought it was just a punch, but it was more than that," said Dimitri Case.
LPD said this is a ongoing investigation and if you know anything about this case, call police at (402) 441-6000.
