Police arrest second suspect in home invasion shooting

Lincoln police arrested a second suspect over the weekend in connection with a home invasion shooting that injured two people early Friday.

Yolanda M. Jefferson, 31, is suspected of helping Termaine Williams, 24, plan the botched robbery of a woman in the 200 block of Northwest 18th Street, police said.

A woman told police a masked man armed with a gun burst into her mobile home shortly after midnight Friday when she answered her door.

The woman, 43, said she ran to the bathroom and then struggled with the man, Lincoln Police Officer Katie Flood said. The handgun went off, and the woman was grazed in the head during the struggle in her home, police said.

She pretended to be dead as the suspect fled, she told police. Her injuries were not life-threatening.

Williams showed up at a local hospital with gunshot wounds to his left arm near his chest and in his right leg.

Investigators believe Williams accidentally shot himself twice and Jefferson took him to the hospital, Flood said Monday.

Williams told police at the hospital he was shot near 18th and South streets, but police connected him to the shooting and arrested him on suspicion of assault and weapons charges later Friday.

Jefferson was arrested on Saturday on suspicion of being an accessory to first-degree assault and taken to jail.
