Logan County Sheriff Steve Nichols has confirmed that police are investigating multiple fatalities at a home in Beason.

Reports could not be confirmed, but sources near the scene said they were told a shooting and stabbing had occurred in the community. Later unconfirmed reports say that there were multiple victims, possible five, all belonging to one family.

Beason is a small community located nine miles east of Lincoln, one mile south of Route 10.
