Disturbance Suspect Arrested; Dog Shot


A Sarpy county man was in jail and a dog was being treated for a minor gunshot wound in what began with a call to police about a disturbance.

Bellevue officers were called to check on a person at 3402 East Dutchman Circle. A man allegedly involved in the incident had reportedly broken several items in the house and was possibly bleeding.

As the first officer approached the home, police say two large dogs charged toward him. The officer fired a shot in defense and one of the dogs suffered what was termed a minor injury to a paw.

The man involved in the incident was gone. Police say they later determined he had opened a gate as he left, releasing the dogs from a fenced area.

The man who had been at the home is identified as 37-year-old Jeffrey L. Orange, of the Dutchman Circle address.

Orange was believed to be on foot in the area and police alerted nearby schools.

Anderson Grove Elementary was in lockout for approximately 15 minutes over the noon hour. Education continued as normal within the school but no one was allowed to enter or exit the building.

Orange was located near an apartment complex parking lot and treated by fire personnel for minor injuries. Orange is being charged with Disturbing the Peace. He was taken to the Sarpy County jail.
