LINCOLN, Neb. (AP) - Lincoln police say they have arrested a suspect in the death of a man whose body was found in the trunk of a running car parked at an apartment complex.

The suspect was arrested after a manhunt near Interstate 80 in Lincoln. Police found him about 2:40 p.m. Thursday in a field near a creek.

The incident began when police were called to the apartment complex early Thursday for a disturbance.

When officers arrived, two men fled in different directions. One drove an SUV across the grass and was later arrested in Omaha and returned to Lincoln. The second man fled on foot before getting into a car and driving north before fleeing on foot again.

Officers then found a running, unoccupied car with a man’s body in the trunk.
