ARNOLD- The Nebraska State Patrol says a trooper fatally shot a man who’d been shooting animals and threatening his father and officers.

Troopers had joined Custer County deputies in responding to a standoff at a home north of Arnold on Monday morning. Troopers blocked the man when he tried to drive a utility vehicle off the property around 6:10 p.m. The patrol says he got out of the vehicle, ignored commands that he remove one of his hands from a pocket and moved aggressively toward a trooper.

The trooper then shot him. He’s been identified as Print Zutavern.
