FREMONT, Neb. (KOLN) -The Nebraska State Patrol released the name of the subject involved in the Fremont Police Department officer-involved shooting that occurred Friday afternoon in Fremont. The deceased male was identified as Aaron Schneider, 33, of Fremont.

The incident occurred Friday afternoon, at approximately 3:25 p.m., when officers responded to a report of a male subject with a weapon threatening harm to himself. Preliminary investigation shows that the subject exited a residence in the 200 block of S. Clarmar Avenue in Fremont with a firearm. The subject, Schneider, fired at least one shot, to which multiple Fremont Police officers responded by discharging their weapons, striking the man.

Schneider was transported to Fremont Methodist Health, where he later succumbed to his injuries.

No officers were injured during the incident.

The Nebraska State Patrol is the lead investigating agency in the incident. Nebraska State Statute requires a grand jury to convene for any in-custody death.
