Pleasanton man was facing sexual assault charges prior to fatal shooting

LEXINGTON, Neb. -- The man killed in a central Nebraska shooting this week had been facing multiple sexual assault charges.

According to court documents, 23-year-old Marcus Keyser, of Pleasanton, was scheduled to appear in Buffalo County District Court Tuesday for a hearing on three charges of felony first-degree sexual related to an incident last December.

Instead, he was found shot dead at a home in Lexington Tuesday morning.

No arrests have been made.

Neighbors told KNOP in North Platte that they heard five gunshots, but didn't see anything.

Police say they are still in the process of conducting several interviews. Anyone with information is asked to contact Lexington Police.
