LINCOLN, Neb. (AP) - A friend of a man who was killed in a shootout with Lincoln police says the man suffered from depression and drug addiction and had lost his fiancée in a car crash a year ago.

The Omaha World-Herald reports (http://bit.ly/1MXrkqL ) reports that Kellie Granfield wrote to Lincoln police to send her thoughts to the officers who fought with 29-year-old Zachary Grigsby before he was fatally shot.

Police say Officer Matthew Gilleland was shot in an arm and Officer Angela Morehouse was punched in the Sunday evening incident. Grigsby was fatally shot.

Police have said Grigsby declared he wouldn’t go to jail after the officers learned he had a felony arrest warrant. He struggled with the officers and then produced a handgun.
