Hector Antonio Lopez

Date:

For More Information Contact:
Jim Peschong, Chief of Police, 402.441.7238
Officer Katie Flood, Public Information Officer, 402.441.7226
Two Related Deaths Under Investigation

On December 1, 2013, at 2:45 a.m., officers with the Lincoln (NE) Police Department were sent to 814 S.18th Street #4 on a disturbance. En route, dispatch advised that gunshots were heard in the area. Twenty year old Erick Musito was found inside the apartment with gunshot wounds to the chest. He was transported to a local hospital and later pronounced deceased. Witnesses reported that twenty-two year old Hector Lopez was responsible for the shooting. They advised that Hector Lopez and Erick Musito, members of rival gangs, exchanged words with one another inside the apartment. Hector Lopez left, but returned minutes later armed with a handgun. He was angry and fired several rounds at Erick Musito. Hector Lopez then fled the scene.

During the investigation, Lincoln police received information that Hector Lopez may be staying at a relative’s home, 2545 Theresa #A10. The SWAT Team was activated and attempts were made to contact Hector. He refused to negotiate or to exit the home. At 3:45 p.m., several gunshots were heard inside the residence. Hector Lopez was later found deceased. An autopsy is pending, but his injury appears self-inflicted.

The investigation into both deaths is on-going. At this time, no other suspects are being sought.

A man identified in a police report as the victim of a fatal shooting early Sunday near the state Capitol had gang ties, according to court documents, though it is unclear whether gang involvement was to blame for his death.

Officers found the man, identified in the report as 20-year-old Erick P. Musito of Lincoln, shot at an apartment near 18th and G streets after responding to a disturbance call at about 2:45 a.m. Sunday. He later was pronounced dead at Bryan West Campus.

Lincoln, Neb.– Lincoln Police say a 22-year-old suspect in a gang-related homicide was found dead Sunday.

Police say Hector Lopez died Sunday after an apparent gunshot wound to the head. An autopsy has been scheduled.

According to police reports, 20-year-old Erick P. Musito, of Lincoln, was shot around 2:45 a.m. Sunday when a disturbance was reported near 18th and G Streets, a few blocks south of downtown.

Around 1 p.m. Sunday police received a tip that Lopez was at 2545 Theresa, his mother’s home. The Lincoln SWAT Team was called in to arrest Lopez.

“They tried to get everyone out of the way, I even had to move my car,” said Shamrock Mobile Home Park resident, Eva Felix.

Officials say police tried to talk Lopez into surrendering, but weren’t able to contact him. SWAT eventually shot gas into the trailer at least twice.

“They were telling people to be careful, not to be around the activity and stay in our homes,” said Shamrock Mobile Home resident, John Caraman.

Police believe Lopez fired several shots from within the home, at least one shot was towards officers. Hours later, officers got a camera inside trailer and found Lopez lying on the floor.

According to police reports, Lopez has a gunshot wound to the head and a pistol was lying next to him. Police never fired into the home.
