Gering Teen Facing Adult Charges for October 2019 Shooting Incident

Gering Teen Facing Adult Charges for October 2019 Shooting Incident

A 17 year old from Gering has been arrested on three firearms-related felony charges and one count of attempted kidnapping stemming from a 2019 investigation.

Details leading up to the arrest have been sealed by the court due to an on-going investigation and the suspect’s age, however, the state’s complaint does say the discharge of a firearm took place late last October involving an occupied vehicle and inhabited house.

Charges include two counts of unlawful or intentional discharge of a firearm, one count of use of a firearm to commit a felony and attempted kidnapping.

The teen is currently charged as an adult, however, KNEB News is withholding the defendant’s name in anticipation of a motion to transfer the case to Juvenile Court.
