Police went to the 3400 block of Portia early Sunday morning to check out a fight, then heard gunshots near Portia and Adams streets. Police don't know what caused the initial disturbance and said they don't think Rashidi or Mann, two women who were shot earlier, were involved in it.

The women were shot in separate vehicles between Adams and Knox streets on Portia.

In the hours following the shooting, officers developed Kennedy as a suspect and began looking for him, Lincoln Police Chief Jeff Bliemeister said Monday morning.

They found him on 14th Street between Adams and Hartley streets, where he refused to follow officers' orders and ran, Bliemeister said.

Officers chased him, and Kennedy pulled a gun, refused to drop it when ordered and then pointed it at the officers before they opened fire, Lancaster County Sheriff Terry Wagner said.
