More Video...

Omaha Police say a drive-by shooting injured one man near the Bob Kerrey Pedestrian Bridge Sunday night.

Around 10 p.m., police tell WOWT 6 News someone in a silver sedan drove up next to a red sedan and opened fire. Four people were inside the red car. The silver sedan fled the scene and three passengers also fled.

One of those passengers, 19-year-old Davion Ford, was hit and walked into the hospital a short time later. His current condition has not been released.

This is the second time a shooting has occurred at the Pedestrian Bridge. In May of 2013, gunfire rang out and 26-year-old Shamari Richards was shot on the bridge. He later died at the hospital.

Police say they're still searching for the silver sedan but no description of the parties in that vehicle has been released.
