LINCOLN, Neb. (AP) — Police say a customer shot a man suspected of trying to rob a convenience store in central Lincoln.

The shooting occurred around 1:40 a.m. Thursday. Police say it's not yet certain whether the man had a weapon. He was identified after he went to a hospital for treatment of a gunshot wound to his left arm. There was a warrant out for his arrest. Police haven't released his or the customer's name.

Police Chief Jeff Bliemeister says the 38-year-old woman had a permit to carry a concealed handgun.

Investigators are reviewing security video and talking to the store clerk about what occurred. Bliemeister says part of the investigation will focus on whether the woman's firing the weapons was legal under Nebraska law.
