Grand Jury decided in favor of Cass County deputy in officer-involved shooting incident leaving one dead

LINCOLN, Nebraska – A guy who was being held in custody was shot and killed on Thursday, but a grand jury in Cass County opted not to indict the deputy involved in the incident.

The Nebraska State Patrol reported in February that Andrew Stratton had been killed by a deputy’s gunshot.

After Stratton’s father called 911 to report that Andrew, 34, had struck him in the head, the events that followed began to take place. When the deputies arrived at the house on February 14 at approximately 11 p.m., they were informed that Stratton was in the basement, and that there was a possibility that he was armed.

Although the specifics have not been made public as yet, the NSP has stated that a deputy shot his handgun while they were in discussions.

According to the initial press statement that was issued by the Cass County authorities back in February, the report stated that “During the process of discussions, a deputy discharged his pistol, striking Stratton.”

On Thursday, 6 News was the first to learn that no charges would be brought forward.

Wendy Guida, Stratton’s mother, sent a text message to 6 News on Thursday saying, “I just can’t even believe it.” Wendy said she couldn’t even believe it herself. “I have been waiting for ten months, and Cass County has never even provided me with any specifics as to how or why they shot him in the back. I do not understand why they did that.” Perhaps this will finally be the moment when I find out why they killed my dear Andrew.

On Sunday evening, a man in his thirties was killed in a shooting that took place in Alvo and took place at a residence.

According to the release, a trooper who arrived at the location that day stated that he heard gunshots outside the apartment when he arrived at the scene. This prompted the trooper to rush into the residence and assist the deputies with life-saving procedures.

According to the investigators, they located a long knife and a bow and arrow at the crime scene.

Josh Stratton’s brother, Stratton, was reported missing in 2018, and Stratton was that sibling. Josh was not taking his medication for his schizophrenia, and his mother reported that she had been trying to put together clues from his disappearance and placing reminders on the anniversaries of his death. Josh was diagnosed with schizophrenia.
