Two shooting arrests have kept Stanton County, Nebraska authorities busy over the extended holiday weekend.
At one o'clock Saturday morning, sheriff's deputies were involved in a high speed pursuit on Highway 24.
The driver lost control of his pickup, ending up in a ditch.
After being arrested for drunk driving, 28-year old Jordan Beehn was identified as the suspect in a Norfolk nightclub shooting that happened an hour before.
Norfolk Police Captain Michael Bauer says witnesses told police that Beehn and his wife were leaving Club Hollywood after midnight. Bauer says Kelly Beehn got into an altercation with another exiting female. Bauer says Jordan Beehn then hit the unnamed male victim, who was attempting to break up the fight, with his gun. When the victim turned around, Bauer says Beehn shot the victim in the mouth.
The victim was life-flighted to Mercy Medical Center in Sioux City. His condition is unknown.
Beehn's wife was also arrested after a handgun and ammunition were found in the couple's pickup.
Meanwhile, another Norfolk, Nebraska man is custody facing several felony charges following an arrest Friday night.
