Lincoln Police are investigating an incident where a cat was injured after possibly being shot with an air rifle.

Jackie Forkner told police she let her cat out on Wednesday evening and he didn't return home. She later found him on Friday limping around a shed near her home in the 14th and Old Cheney area.

LPD said the cat was taken to the vet where fragments were found in his leg. The veterinarian told the owner he believed her cat "Bo" had been shot with an air rifle.

Police are investigating the incident.
