Around 11:30 p.m. on Dec. 31, police said officers responded to a call at an apartment in Nebraska City, Nebraska.

At the scene, officials said they found 21-year-old David Holmes on the couch with a gunshot wound to his head.

Police said they tried life-saving measures on Holmes, but he was pronounced dead at the scene.

Witnesses identified the suspect as Donald Pack, 22, authorities said.

Minutes later, officers said they received a phone call from Pack, who said he had shot someone and he was on foot with a loaded gun, according to KETV. He ended the call, but police said they were able to get Pack back on the phone and meet him.

Court documents stated Pack made several statements to the police while he was being questioned, including “It was all an accident” and “I did not shoot that dude intentionally,” KETV reported.

Police said the shooting took place in front of Holmes’ girlfriend, Emily Morris, their baby and two of Pack’s young children.

Pack was booked into the Otoe County jail and was charged with second-degree murder.
