LINCOLN — Gang members are accused of beating two strangers to death with a baseball bat last summer, and another gang's challenge may have been the trigger, according to authorities.
Officer Katie Flood said Tuesday that Lincoln police have arrested two men in the past week in connection with the deaths. She said the investigation is continuing, and more arrests are possible.
