NORTH PLATTE, Neb. (KNOP) - UPDATE: A York man is in serious condition, and a North Platte man is dead after a shooting incident in North Platte, Wednesday around 3:45 pm.

The Lincoln County Sheriff’s Office says the Lincoln County 911 Center dispatched deputies from the Sheriff’s office and the North Platte Police Department Wednesday afternoon after a report of a shooting at 10th and Roosevelt Street in North Platte came in.

A 56-year-old man from York was found, shot several times. He was taken by North Platte Fire and Rescue to Great Plains Health. He is in very serious condition.
