According to Gordon, the gunshot between the two males appeared to be an isolated incident. No other people were hurt. For the homicide investigation, police sealed off F Street on Thursday between 84th and 87th Streets.
The moving firm wrote on Facebook that it is ultimately assisting law police with the inquiry and that its “hearts and prayers” are with the victim’s family.
The terrible incident that included two of our colleagues today and escalated off-site, culminating in a fatality, was described in the message as “we are deeply saddened by.” The shooting results in Omaha’s fourth fatality so far this year.
