HOLDREGE, Neb. (KSNB) - Manuel Gomez has been ordered to a 90-day evaluation at the Lincoln Regional Center.

A Phelps County District Court Judge handed down the order to the 48-year-old late last week, where the court needed to determine if Gomez was a danger to himself or others by reason of mental illness or defect, and will remain so into the foreseeable future.

The court determined he was after reviewing the evidence from the case as well as statements from two psychiatrists.

Gomez was found not guilty by reason of insanity for the death of two men during a shooting spree in February 2019. Raymond Burton and David Rogers were found dead at an apartment complex in east Holdrege. A third man, Doyle Morse, of Holdrege, was also shot and injured during the shooting spree.
