LINCOLN, Neb. (AP) - Police Chief Jim Peschong (peh-SHAHNG’) says his officers fired eight shots and a man they were trying to arrest fired three shots during a fatal melee outside a northeast Lincoln home.

The Lincoln Journal Star reports (https://bit.ly/1l8u8sd ) that Peschong expressed amazement Wednesday that the two injured officers weren’t killed.

Police say Officer Matthew Gilleland was shot in an arm and Officer Angela Morehouse was punched in the Sunday evening incident. Twenty-nine-year-old Zachary 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.
