May 10, 2019

(Lincoln, NE)  --  An internal investigation is being conducted after a man found a loaded gun in the Nebraska State Office Building yesterday.  Nebraska State Patrol and Capitol Security Detail secured the handgun once they were notified by the worker at the Department of Revenue.  It is said to have been left in a restroom for as long as an hour by a Department of Agriculture investigator.  Officials say NDA investigators have guns because they are appointed as deputy state sheriffs.  Workers at the building said they were worried that anyone could have gained access to a weapon.
