She called Heng, with whom she worked in the fraud department at First National Bank of Omaha, because she thought it would be “quicker” than calling the police, Henthorn said.
“She was frightened,” the investigator said.
Dornan said Heng, who lived a block away, went to the complex. He took his handgun, which he was licensed to carry.
Dornan said, however, that Heng wasn’t planning to confront Lane or use the weapon. He wanted only to help his friend, Dornan told the judge. Dornan said the shooting was justifiable because Heng perceived Lane as a threat to himself and Strong.
Heng called 911 himself and tried to administer CPR, Dornan said.
