According to a report previously submitted by Lincoln Police
Department Chief Ken Greenslate, the Lincoln police were called to

He indicated the charge warranted Landstrom being charged as an

He read aloud a recount of the incident, saying that on May 14
Landstrom allegedly committed the offense of carrying to the high
school a pistol concealed under his shirt.
