MORE INFORMATION REVEALED ON OFFICER-INVOLVED SHOOTING AS OSCEOLA MAN CHARGED WITH ATTEMPTED SECOND-DEGREE MURDER
According to Adams County District Court records, Anthony Mattison, 33, filed a not guilty plea Tuesday to charges of attempted second-degree murder, attempted first-degree assault on an officer, terroristic threats, use of a firearm to commit a felony, possession of a firearm by a prohibited person and possession of a controlled substance (meth).
An arrest affidavit detailing the case has been sealed, but a complaint said the charges involved a Hastings Police Officer and are related to a shooting on Sept. 27.
In a news release, Hastings Police said officers responded just before 12:45 p.m. Sept. 27 to an officer-involved shooting in the 300 block of South Lincoln Avenue, which is near the police station. HPD said multiple HPD officers were involved, with two firing their weapons.
HPD said in a news release that no injuries were reported during the incident. Mattison was taken into custody by Nebraska State Patrol on unrelated felony warrants.
Court records show Mattison has warrants out of Hall County for charges in two separate cases for operating a vehicle to avoid arrest, driving under suspension, theft by unlawful taking (more than $5,000) and habitual criminal.
Court records say Mattison was found to be in possession of methamphetamine during the incident. Mattison's bond is set at 10% of $2 million.
Mattison’s next court hearing is scheduled for Jan. 3, with a jury trial set to begin in February.
