A man was shot and killed by Fremont police after firing at officers Friday.

The shooting occurred after officers respondedĀ at about 3:25 p.m. to reports of a man threatening to harm himself at a home in southeast Fremont, according to a news release from the Nebraska State Patrol.

A preliminary investigation found that Aaron Schneider, 33, of Fremont, came out of the residence with a firearm and fired at least one shot. Multiple officers fired their weapons in response, striking the man, the release said.

Schneider was taken by ambulance to Fremont Methodist Health, where he died.

No officers were wounded. The State Patrol is investigating the incident.

A grand jury will review the death, as is the case whenever a person dies in custody or as police are trying to apprehend them.
