A 26-year-old woman was shot in the chest Wednesday at a Lincoln home, and police say they don’t believe it was a random act.

The woman’s wound was not considered life-threatening, according to Lincoln Police Capt. Todd Kocian.

Preliminary information indicates two men came into the home, there was some type of altercation and a shooting resulted, Kocian said. It’s not clear whether the men were invited into the home or forced their way in, he said.

The shooting was reported at 10:57 a.m. and occurred in the 1700 block of B Street, he said.

“Investigators don’t believe this was a random act and do not believe there is an ongoing threat to the public,” Lincoln police posted on Facebook.
