Man Shot 7 Neighbors and then Fatally Shot Himself in Nebraska: State Patrol Say

Police say a man in Nebraska shot seven people, including four children. The man had earlier told the people who were shot to “go back to where they came from” and “speak English.”

The Nebraska State Patrol said that 74-year-old Billy Booth shot at his neighbors from inside his home in Crete just before 7 p.m. Friday and then killed himself with the gun.

The house had about 15 people inside and outside, but most of the people who were shot were outside. Three were people between the ages of 22 and 43, and four were children between the ages of 3 and 10.

Some of the people who were hurt have been treated and let go. One is getting care in Lincoln, and the other two are at Children’s Nebraska in Omaha. None of the victims were hurt so badly that they could not live.

Police told NBC that they think all of the victims are Hispanic.

When the cops arrived, they found people who had been shot outside the house and the suspect inside his own house. A shotgun was found close.

The police said they didn’t think there was a fight right before the shooting, but Booth and his family had a history of fighting over parking and other issues, and someone had said the suspect “told them to go back to where they came from and speak English.”

According to Crete Police Chief Gary Young Jr., they have been called to the neighborhood “several times” since 2021. Most of the calls were from Booth about “driving behavior” in the area, he said at a news meeting on Saturday.
