LINCOLN -- The man critically wounded following a dispute with another man in a northwest Lincoln neighborhood is expected to survive. Police say 28-year-old Isaac Durr was shot several times Tuesday afternoon by a neighbor, 40-year-old Scott Brus, who was apparently upset over Durr's dog relieving itself in his yard or barking loudly. Chief Jim Peschong says Durr's wife came out to get their 2-year-old daughter and took her back into their house in the 1600 block of Prairie Lane so the men could talk. Words were exchanged. Brus apparently pulled out a gun and shot Durr four times in the upper body. Durr's wife ran outside to help him, then ran to another neighbor's house for help. Meanwhile, Brus fled and investigators got a description of his vehicle. He was tracked down by three Lancaster County Sheriff's deputies at 70th and Cornhusker, before Brus crashed into a couple of vehicles and a power pole in an alley between 68th and 69th Street, just south of Havelock Avenue. Peschong says Brus was dead from an apparent gunshot wound to the head. Sheriff Terry Wagner says three deputies chasing Brus are on paid administrative leave until a grand jury investigation is completed.
