Authorities in eastern Nebraska say Fremont police fatally shot a man Friday afternoon after he fired at them. 33-year old Aaron Schneider of Fremont died at a local hospital.
The Nebraska State Patrol, which is conducting the investigation, says the shooting occurred as police responded about 3:30 to a report of a man with a gun and threatening to harm himself.
Fremont police say the man exited a residence carrying a gun and fired one shot at the officers, several of whom returned fire and hit the man an undisclosed number of times. He was taken to the hospital, where he later died.
No officers were injured during the incident. Nebraska State Statute requires a grand jury to convene for any death that occurs when a person is in custody or in the process of being arrested.
