GIBBON, Neb. (AP) - A judge has set a $3 million bond for a Grand Island man accused of fatally shooting a 34-year-old outside a meatpacking plant in south-central Nebraska.

Bond was set Tuesday afternoon for Angelo Bol, who is charged with first-degree murder and use of a firearm.

Law enforcement officials believe he targeted Karel Perez-Almaguer on Monday evening in the parking lot of Gibbon Packing, the Kearney Hub (https://bit.ly/1z3pDTU ) reported. Bol previously worked at the plant, though it’s unknown how long he was employed there or what his duties were.

Judge Gerry Jorgensen appointed the Buffalo County Public Defender’s Office to represent Bol. A message seeking comment was left with the office Wednesday.

Bol told the judge he is from Sudan but has been in the United States for 13 years and has lived in Grand Island the last six months. Bol’s next court appearance is scheduled in January.

According to court records, a Buffalo County deputy sheriff saw a man, later identified as Bol, standing in the plant’s parking lot holding a gun.

Bol was ordered to drop his weapon and was taken into custody. Almaguer was pronounced dead at the scene. Buffalo County Attorney Shawn Eatherton declined to say how many times Almaguer was shot.
