The Nebraska State Patrol confirms it has made an arrest in connection with the suspected murders of four people in Laurel.
The State Patrol says the suspect was arrested around 5:30 a.m.
The State Patrol says in the 500 block of Elm Street in Laurel, investigators have been able to examine that crime scene and now identify that gunfire is suspected to have played a part in the incidents at both homes Thursday morning.
Fire investigators also believe the fire in the 500 block of Elm Street may have started around the same time as the reported explosion in the 200 block of Elm.
However, indications of that fire weren’t visible outside the home for hours.
Both incidents are now believed to have occurred shortly after 3:00 a.m. Thursday.
The Patrol requests anyone who may have seen anything out of the ordinary in Laurel between midnight and 4:00 a.m. Thursday to report it immediately by calling 402-479-4921.
