LINCOLN, Neb. (AP) - The Lancaster County sheriff says a deputy U.S. marshal fired the fatal shots at a suspect when he saw the man go for a gun in his car.

Thirty-four-year-old Tyson Hubbard, of Omaha, was shot around 10:45 a.m. Thursday. Lancaster County Sheriff Terry Wagner said Monday that the deputy U.S. marshal was one of six members of the Metro Fugitive Task Force, which includes his deputies and Lincoln police officers.

Wagner says the deputy marshal saw the butt of a revolver under a car seat and saw Hubbard reach for it. Wagner says the deputy marshal yelled a warning to the other officers and then opened fire. Wagner says video surveillance from a nearby business backs up officers’ accounts of what happened.

Wagner didn’t release the deputy marshal’s name.
