For the second time in less than a week, a young North Platte man is charged with illegal use of a handgun.

This time the man, Terrence Alexander, was assaulted at a party Friday night, but after investigation, he faces serious charges himself.

Alexander, 20, went to the emergency room early Saturday morning. He was charged Thursday with having a handgun, making threats and committing an assault at the same party.

Jobie Loving, 19, was also charged Thursday with assault in the melee.

On Monday, a teenager was shot in the head by another teen at a video game party in North Platte. The alleged shooter, Cristian M. Vera, 19, is charged with deliberately causing serious bodily harm.

This time, law officers met Alexander, 20, at Great Plains Health around 1 a.m. Saturday, the sheriff's office said. Alexander told them a bunch of people attacked him at a party at 8461 West Platte Valley Road, hitting him with a chair and a large home stereo.

Deputies went to the scene. The party was over, but they described it as “a very large party that also involved minors and alcohol,” where “multiple criminal violations occurred.”

During the investigation, witnesses said Alexander displayed a large-caliber, semi-automatic pistol just before the altercation, the sheriff said. Alexander himself was arrested Thursday, charged with terroristic threats, use of a weapon to commit a felony and disturbing the peace.

Loving was also arrested for the altercation, the sheriff said. Loving is charged with first-degree assault and disturbing the peace.

Loving was in jail overnight, but came up with the necessary 10% of a $100,000 bond the next day and was released. 

Alexander is also charged with violating probation. He spent time in jail in September for a North Platte burglary, and previously was in jail as a fugitive in Lancaster County, according to sheriff's records. He remains in jail on a $100,000 bond.

Loving was booked into jail briefly in January 2016 as a fugitive from justice in Platte County, the sheriff's records show.
