Israel Matos-Colon Death – A call to 911 reporting a shooting was received by the Cedar County Sheriff’s Office on Wednesday morning, which prompted the beginning of the investigation. According to a news release from the State Patrol, when they arrived at the tower building site located two miles north of Hartington, they discovered Israel Matos-Colon, who was originally from Fowlerville, Michigan, suffering from multiple gunshot wounds. The name of the man who was murdered in the shooting that took place near Hartington the previous week was made public on Monday by the Nebraska State Patrol. The victim was a man from Michigan who was 31 years old at the time of his death.
Matos-Colon was transferred to a hospital in Yankton
Some crew members who were working on the tower at the time of the shooting were actively attempting to save the lives of individuals who had been shot when law officers arrived. Matos-Colon was transferred to a hospital in Yankton, South Dakota, but he was unable to recuperate from the injuries he had there and expired away a short time later. Matos-Colon and David Phillips, who is twenty years old and hails from Kenner, Louisiana, are suspected to have opened fire on one another following an altercation that took place at work. According to the detectives, they believe that the argument took place between the two individuals.

He was also held on the suspicion of using a firearm or other potentially lethal weapon in the commission of a crime. He was arrested and brought to the Cedar County Correctional Facility after being taken into custody. The Nebraska sheriff’s office asked the Nebraska State Patrol to take charge of the investigation into the fatal shooting that occurred in their state.
