JUNE 18, 2020 (NORTH PLATTE, NEB.) — Nebraska State Patrol Investigators have arrested an Omaha woman following a shooting Wednesday afternoon on Interstate 80 near Cozad.
At approximately 3:13 p.m. Wednesday, June 17, State Troopers, Cozad Police Officers, Dawson County Sheriff’s Deputies, and Cozad Volunteer Fire and Rescue, responded to a 911 call regarding a shooting that had occurred inside a vehicle on eastbound I-80 at mile marker 223. When troopers arrived, they found a deceased male in the driver’s seat of a pickup truck that was pulling a trailer. The victim is identified as Joshua Jourdan, 35, of Omaha.
Preliminary investigation has revealed that Jourdan and his wife, Kathleen Jourdan, 31, of Omaha, were involved in an argument while traveling on I-80. Jourdan had been driving the vehicle and pulled over during the argument, at which time Kathleen Jourdan produced a handgun and shot Joshua Jourdan twice.
Kathleen Jourdan called 911 to report the shooting and remained at the scene. The couple’s two children were in the backseat of the vehicle. The children were not injured.
Kathleen Jourdan has been arrested for second degree murder and lodged in Dawson County Jail. The children are in protective custody. The investigation remains ongoing.
