Sheriff says man wounded when roommate’s gun went off

Louisville, Neb. —  Authorities say a man was flown to Omaha for treatment after he was wounded in a shooting.

Cass County Sheriff William Brueggemann said in a news release that deputies responded Tuesday night to a report of a possible accidental shooting at a home in Louisville.

The release says 24-year-old Andrew Urban was handling his rifle inside the home’s living room when it fired. The bullet penetrated a wall and hit the side of the garage door opening.

The release says it appears debris from the bullet exiting the door opening struck Urban’s roommate, 24-year-old Lawrence Schram. He was flown to Nebraska Medical Center for treatment of his chest wound.  The case is being investigated.
