The Nebraska State Patrol on Saturday identified the man killed by troopers in a vehicle pursuit that ended in Seward County.
Nathan D. Brokaw, 28, of Brainard, Neb., died Friday night after exchanging gunfire with the troopers, said Deb Collins, State Patrol spokeswoman.
A second man, Joseph J. Pritchard, 31, of Stromsburg, Neb., was taken into custody after falling out of the passenger side of the car.
Brokaw was wanted on felony warrants in Platte and Colfax Counties for terroristic threats and witness tampering. Pritchard was wanted for a parole violation.
Collins did not name the troopers who shot Brokaw.
The pursuit began after State Patrol investigators conducting surveillance on the two men approached a car they were sitting in about 7 p.m., Collins said.
The car, parked in an alley behind a home in Stromsburg, accelerated through a yard. Pritchard fell out of the vehicle.
Collins said that during the chase through Polk, Butler and Seward Counties, Brokaw fired multiple rounds at State Patrol cruisers. His car was stopped when it was rammed by cruisers just north of the village of Bee.
A grand jury will be convened to investigate the Brokaw death. State law requires a grand jury when someone dies in police custody or in the process of being apprehended.
