Omaha shooting: what happened?
Two police officers were shot and another person was injured in the shooting that happened in Omaha. The officers were sent to Nebraska Medicine.
At first, there was a report of a break-in going on in Dino’s storage. At about 10:30 p.m., according to the authorities, Uniform Patrol Bureau officers were dispatched to Dino’s Storage.
Officers went to 53rd and Center in response to a call about a burglary in progress.
A man was breaking into a first-floor storage container that had a gun case and ammo, so property management alerted the police.
The officers were assisted in entering the storage facility by property management. They confronted a man in his late 30s, and a scuffle followed, with gunshots exchanged.
