[ARCHIVED] Nebraska State Patrol to investigate Monday morning death in Columbus


The Columbus Police Department has confirmed a male suspect took his own life on Monday, April 10th.

About 9:22 a.m. April 10th, 2023, CPD officers were dispatched to the 2500 block of 7th Street on a call of a male subject with a shotgun walking around. Once on scene, CPD officers observed a male subject standing by a garage holding a shotgun. Officers gave commands to drop the weapon, but the subject refused, CPD Capt. Doug Molczyk said. The male suspect shot himself shortly after, the captain noted. 

Molczyk said CPD has requested the Nebraska State Patrol to investigate. 

“This is currently an active investigation and that is all the information we have to provide at this time,” Molczyk said.
