WEEPING WATER – A 39-year-old woman, April Crowley, was identified late last week as the woman who died from an apparent self-inflicted gunshot wound after law enforcement authorities went to a house to serve multiple arrest warrants on the evening of June 7.
The woman’s identity was released by the Nebraska State Patrol.
According to the patrol, at approximately 9:30 p.m. on that evening, a Monday, deputies with the Cass County Sheriff’s Office were attempting to serve multiple arrest warrants at the residence at 9901 Adams Street in rural Cass County.
As deputies were attempting to make contact with the subject, they heard an apparent gunshot come from inside the residence. Deputies then heard a person call for help, according to the patrol.
Deputies entered the residence and located a female, later identified as Crowley, with an apparent self-inflicted gunshot wound. Deputies attempted life-saving measures, but the woman died at the scene, according to the patrol.
The sheriff’s office requested that the patrol conduct an investigation, which has been conducted as an in-custody death investigation, according to the patrol. No deputies discharged a weapon at any point during the incident, according to the patrol, and the investigation remains ongoing as of this past Tuesday, the patrol said.
