Lincoln man dies after Big Shots shooting


A 25-year-old man who shot himself in an apparent suicide at Big Shots Indoor Range died Tuesday night, police say.

Lincoln resident Corey Jacox died at 11:40 p.m. at Bryan West Campus because of a gunshot wound to his head, Officer Angela Sands said.

He was set to appear in court for sentencing at 1:15 p.m. Tuesday for robbing a Lincoln Hy-Vee pharmacy in June 2018. He had earlier pleaded no contest in a plea deal to attempted robbery.

In the robbery he obtained an undisclosed amount of Oxycontin and Xanax and overdosed at a home in southeast Lincoln.

Jacox faced up to 20 years in prison.

Police were called to 399 Sun Valley Blvd. at about 1:30 p.m. Tuesday on reports of a self-inflicted gunshot wound.

Lincoln Police Sgt. Tyler Cooper said after police reviewed video surveillance, they determined the shot was not accidental and was self-inflicted.

Cooper said the owner of Big Shots called police after the business' range safety officer noticed Jacox and notified the owner.

Police have not said how Jacox obtained the gun.

In April 2015, a 22-year-old man rented a gun from the business and shot himself. His death was ruled a suicide.
