Authorities look for St. Libory man accused of pointing gun at deputy
ST. LIBORY, Neb. (KSNB) - Authorities are looking for a St. Libory man accused of pointing his shotgun at a Howard County Sheriff’s deputy.
The Howard County Attorney charged 59-year-old Jerome Dush with use of a firearm to commit a felony and terroristic threats.
Court records indicate a Howard County deputy attempted to serve a civil summons on Dush Monday afternoon. The deputy saw Dush at a house in St. Libory and attempted contact. When the deputy approached Dush he yelled at the deputy accusing him of trespassing and threatened to get a gun to shoot the deputy.
Court records show that the deputy then went to a another near-by house and, as the deputy was knocking on that door, Dush emerged from the first house with a shotgun and again yelled at the deputy, accusing him of trespassing. Dush went back inside.
The deputy waited for back up and then did a search of the first house. They found a single-shot shotgun, but did not locate Dush.
Court records do not indicate that any shots were fired or that anyone was injured.
