Regrettably, the niglets were spared.
I’m sure they’ll continue their mother’s noble line of work when they grow up.
Lincoln Police have determined a murder near 26th and South streets on Wednesday was a targeted act of violence and likely drug-related, according to a statement released Thursday afternoon.
According to a release by LPD, investigators have finished processing the scene where Audrea Craig, 34, was killed on Wednesday morning.
LPD said the killing was likely drug-related, and there is no ongoing threat to the public.
Multiple firearms were recovered from the scene, including one outside the home, police said.
In documents obtained by 10/11, investigators say Craig was selling marijuana, and kept the profits in her bedroom closet.
The documents say two unidentified black males broke into the home, had an altercation with Craig and her boyfriend in the bedroom, then shot her multiple times in the chest.
Investigators asked that Craig’s five children, who were all in the home at the time of the shooting, be placed in protective custody.
Investigators say after interviewing the children, it was determined that two other unreported robberies had taken place at this home within the past four weeks.
LPD says officers have completed all processing of the scene, including interviewing witnesses and analyzing forensic evidence, but will hold the scene until the completion of the autopsy.
