LINCOLN, Neb. (AP) — Police in Lincoln are investigating after a man was killed with a large pole.

The incident happened Monday afternoon in the 2600 block of Vine Street. The victim’s name has not been released. Police say it appears that the two men got into a fight and the suspect used a large pole as a weapon.
