The second of two suspects wanted in connection with a late night pursuit in which shots were fired at a Nebraska State Patrol trooper has been taken into custody.
 
Petr Strizheus, 18, Harrisburg, SD was taken into custody without incident around noon, Saturday, January 28, at the public library in Minden. Strizheus was arrested by Minden Police and a Kearney County Sheriff’s deputy after the librarian reported a suspicious subject to law enforcement.
 
Strizheus and another suspect were the subjects of a pursuit that led to an overnight search in Kearney County, when the two ditched the vehicle they were driving near the Fort Kearney Feedlot. The first suspect, Aleksandr Voznyuk, 22, Sioux Falls, SD was located at 2:00 a.m., hiding in a field near the feedlot.
 
Neither suspect was armed at the time of their arrests. Both men will be lodged in the Buffalo County Jail. The investigation into the incident continues.
 
The Nebraska State Patrol was assisted by the Kearney, Buffalo & Phelps County Sheriff’s Offices, and the Kearney and Minden Police Departments.
