LINCOLN, Neb. (AP) - Lincoln Police have identified two of the three officers involved in a fatal weekend confrontation with a 29-year-old man.

Police said Tuesday that Officer Matthew Gilleland and Officer Angela Morehouse were both injured in the Sunday evening incident. Zachary Grigsby was fatally shot.

Gilleland was shot in the arm and was hospitalized afterward, but he is expected to go home Tuesday. Morehouse was punched during the altercation.

Police have said three officers were involved, but they refused to identify the third officer on Tuesday. Grigsby and both the officers identified are white.

Authorities have said Grigsby fired at the officers and declared he wouldn’t go to jail after they learned he had a felony arrest warrant.
