UPDATE: Suspect Reached for Gun Moments Before Being Shot by U.S. Marshal

3-9-2015 Nebraska:

LINCOLN, Neb. -- The Lancaster County Sheriff's Office says a man killed in an officer-involved shooting reached for his own gun moments before the fatal shooting.

On March 5, law enforcement was serving a warrant to 34-year-old Tyson Hubbard, of Omaha, at the Motel 6 near N 27th and Fletcher.

According to Lancaster County Sheriff Terry Wagner, Hubbard was in his car when a U.S. Marshal, a Lincoln police officer and a deputy attempted to take him into custody.

According to a press release, Hubbard struggled with the officer and deputy on the driver's side door, while a Deputy U.S. Marshal approached the vehicle from the passenger side. The Deputy Marshal saw Hubbard searching for a handgun in the car and alerted the other officers.

The Deputy Marshal fired as Hubbard was retrieving the handgun. Hubbard was transported to a Lincoln hospital, where he later died.

An autopsy confirmed that Hubbard died of multiple gunshot wounds to the torso. Toxicology results are still pending.

Wagner says a handgun was recovered from a vehicle at the scene.

The shooting was captured on surveillance video and verified the officers' statements.

According to court records, Hubbard has a lengthy criminal history. In 2015, he was arrested on a second degree assault charge.

An arrest warrant was issued for Hubbard on March 3 when he didn’t show up for court.

Hubbard is also listed as a registered sex offender. According to court records, in 2008 he was convicted for first degree sexual assault of an adult.

No law enforcement was injured in the incident.

A Grand Jury is still investigating. ..Source.. by 1011HD
