La Vista Fireworks Tent Security Guard Wounded

Police say a La Vista fireworks tent security guard is hospitalized in stable condition after suffering a lower body gunshot wound in an exchange of gunfire with a man during a robbery attempt around 5:15 Friday morning.

La Vista Police Chief Bob Lausten tells KFAB Radio News the tent is at 84th and Brentwood and the security guard is a 22-year old male, who was initially in critical condition when taken to a hospital.

Lausten says shots were fired both inside and outside the tent.

Police say the suspect is a black male wearing a black bandana and armed with a handgun, who fled westbound on Brentwood toward 87th Street.

It's not known if he is also injured.
