Authorities: Man kills himself, woman shot in northeast Nebraska

LYONS, Neb. (AP) — Authorities say a man killed himself and a woman was shot several times at her home in northeast Nebraska.

Deputies were sent Wednesday night to a residence about 4 miles northeast of Lyons after a woman called 911, saying she needed help because someone was there with a gun.

A Burt County press release said officials found 34-year-old Megan Cameron in the doorway of her home, suffering from several gunshot wounds. Inside, they found the body of 36-year-old Judd Bogseth.

It appears he had shot himself, officials said.

Cameron was flown to a Sioux City, Iowa, hospital.

Burt County Sheriff Robert Pickell said Bogseth had forced his way into Cameron’s home. The sheriff didn’t say, however, whether the case is being investigated as an attempted murder followed by a suicide.
