Thursday afternoon shootings in north Lincoln ruled a murder-suicide

North Lincoln shooting

Police say a report of a shooting late Thursday afternoon sent them to a home in northwest Lincoln where they found a man and woman dead.

Lincoln police on Wednesday said shootings last week that left a northwest Lincoln couple dead were a murder-suicide.

Investigators determined that Adnan Almansouri, 49, killed Rasha Khaled, 35, before killing himself. The couple had a "volatile relationship" with a history of verbal disputes, and Almansouri had talked about suicide before, Lincoln Police Chief Jeff Bliemeister said.

"We do not believe that there is anyone else responsible for the deaths of Rasha and Adnan," he added.

Police were called to the home on the 1100 block of Geranium Drive at 5:04 p.m. on Thursday.

Police found Khaled with four gunshot wounds to the head, shoulder and back, while Almansouri was found with a single gunshot wound to the head. Both died at the scene.

The suspected firearm used in the incident was legally purchased and owned by Almansouri, police said.

Police asked a juvenile court judge on Friday to place the couple's five children -- who range in age from 3 to 14 -- in the state's custody, according to court records. They are currently living with a family member in Lincoln, police say.

The children all had been home during the shootings.
