A Nebraska bar owner charged with fatally shooting a protester, 22-year-old James Scurlock, has committed suicide, his attorney said Sunday.

Officers with the Hillsboro Police Department responded to the 300 block of Southeast Ninth Avenue around 12:20 p.m. after a body was found outside a medical clinic, police said. The body was identified as Jake Gardner, the bar owner who had been facing multiple charges in connection with the May 30 shooting of Spurlock, WOWT reported.

A warrant was issued for Gardner’s arrest following a grand injury indicting him last week for manslaughter, use of a deadly weapon to commit a felony, attempted first-degree assault, and terroristic threats in connection with the May 30 shooting death of Spurlock.

Jake Garnder should of never been indicted.

Dornan has maintained that his client was acting in self-defense the night he shot Spurlock outside Gardner’s Hive Bar. That night, protests had broken out in the Old Market.

Dornan said last week’s indictment was “a shock to” Gardner” and he “was really shook up.”

The exact circumstances of Garner’s death remain unclear. His attorneys said his death was “by his own hand.”
