The four were taken to the Medical Center of the Rockies in Loveland, the school said. Other members of the team were traveling in another vehicle, the school stated.
At 6 p.m. Friday evening officers from the Chadron Police Department responded to reports of a disturbance on the 800 block of King Street. Residents from that area reported that a man armed with a knife attempted to break into one home, then successfully broke into another, where he made contact with the occupants and eventually fled.
Chadron Police officers made visual contact with a suspect matching the reported description, than gave chase on foot. The suspect was apprehended at gun-point by Officer Mike Loutzenhiser, Lt. Rick Hickstein and Sgt. Shawn Banzhaf (bon-zoff).
Dawes County Attorney Vance Haug said that investigation led officers to a home on the 900 block of Shelton Street, which is located off campus. The body of the suspect’s roommate was found at that location.
"Nebraska officials said they're concerned about an apparent rush by parents to drop their teenage children off at hospitals before lawmakers change the state's troubled "safe haven" law."
"Nebraska was the last state in the country to pass such a law. But every other state included an age limit."
"Of the 34 children who have been dropped off at hospitals, officials said not one has been an infant."
"All but six have been older than 10, according to a Nebraska Department of Health and Human Services analysis."
"Parents have traveled into Nebraska from Michigan, Indiana, Iowa, Florida and Georgia."
"On Thursday, a boy, 14, and his 17-year-old sister were dropped off at an Omaha hospital; the girl ran away from the hospital, officials said. A 5-year-old boy was left by his mother at a different hospital, officials said. The day before, a father flew in from Miami, Florida, to leave his teenage son at a hospital, officials said."
"Please don't bring your teenager to Nebraska," Gov. Dave Heineman told CNN. "Think of what you are saying. You are saying you no longer support them. You no longer love them."
"I think this has spurred some really healthy conversations about how do parents get the help that they need when they are struggling with some of these parenting issues..."
Deciding he could wait no longer to address what has become a state embarrassment, Gov. Dave Heineman said Wednesday he will call a special legislative session to amend Nebraska's loosely worded safe-haven law, which in just a few months has allowed parents to abandon nearly two dozen children as old as 17.
Heineman had planned to wait until the next regular legislative session convened in January, but changed his mind as the number of children dropped off at hospitals grew. Two teenagers were abandoned Tuesday night alone, and three children dropped off previously did not even live in Nebraska.
"We've had five in the last eight days," Heineman said in explaining why he called a special session. "We all hoped this wouldn't happen."
