Hebron shooting suspect pleads not guilty (NTV News)

The man accused of an October shooting in Hebron, which killed one man and injured another, appeared in court on Tuesday.

21-year-old Michael Lewis was charged with one count of use of a firearm to commit a felony and assault in the first degree.

Lewis pleaded not guilty to both counts.

The judge had set Michael Lewis at a $250,000 bond with 10 percent which was paid.

According to the affidavit, on October 27 around 1:30 a.m., Lewis was involved in a fight and pointed a firearm at another person in Davenport, Nebraska.

Around 3:20 a.m., Michael Lewis called the Thayer County dispatch to report two people breaking into his Hebron home and that he shot them.

Further investigation by law enforcement shows no one actually entered the home.

When deputies arrived on scene, they found Remington Elting and Reuben Elting, both of Davenport, with gunshot wounds.

Remington Elting later died, while Reuben Elting is listed to be in critical condition.

After the investigation, Lewis was arrested and lodged at the Thayer County Jail.

Michael Lewis will make his next appearance in court on Feb. 5, 2019 at 9:45 a.m. at the Thayer County Courthouse.
