North Platte Police have located the third Suspect in last Thursday’s shooting.

At around 1:00 a.m. this morning, Officers from the North Platte Police Department located Ethen Bentley, 21, waiting at the Bus Stop at 1801 South Jeffers.

Officers had probable cause to arrest Bentley due to his involvement in the April 11 shooting that occurred near 17th and Franklin.

Officers watched as Bentley left the area of the Bus Stop and made contact with him on the South River Bridge.

Bentley was taken into custody, and charged with Being an Accessory to a Felony.

It was originally reported that Bentley was arrested along with two other suspects, Matthew Bobo and Britton Renfrow, but Officers were not able to locate Bentley until this morning.
