Grand jury finds no wrongdoing by officers in Lincoln shooting that killed Wyoming couple

Source: Omaha World Herald

By LORI PILGER

Agrand jury Thursday cleared law enforcement of wrongdoing in a shootout on the edge of Lincoln that left a Wyoming couple dead last February.

Lancaster County Attorney Patrick Condon said that on Feb. 20, Christian Alexander and Hailey Stainbrook were involved in an armed robbery of a man in a northwest Lincoln hotel parking lot.

They'd met the man the night before through a social media app and hung out at the couple's hotel room. That morning, the victim told police they showed a gun and stole his wallet.

About a half an hour later, the victim began getting notices about his credit card being used at businesses in north Lincoln, where law enforcement began searching for them and the Chevy Trailblazer they'd been seen driving.

1. I hadn't heard about this case until now

Judging from the article, it seems justified.

2. It sounds like two slimeballs who were headed in this direction for a long time.

3. sad incident, involving sad (but dangerous) people

just weren't going to give up -- even after being stopped, shot, and subsequent negotiation ----
After Alexander was shot, the troopers and officer negotiated for about seven minutes with Stainbrook to drop the weapon she had so officers could provide aid. When she refused and pointed the weapon at officers, she was shot by one of the troopers, Wagner said.
