Two people were taken to the Nebraska Medical Center following a shooting that occurred over the lunch hour Tuesday.

The victims are identified as 39-year-old Jimmy Jackson and 28-year-old Bernard Watson.

They were reportedly sitting in a parked car in the area of 38th and Ames when, they said an unknown number of people started shooting at them. Police at the scene told WOWT 6 News that one man was shot in the head, the other was shot in the hip.

Omaha police are canvassing the area and knocking on doors to talk to potential witnesses. So far, no arrests have been made.

Officers at the scene told WOWT 6 News they're glad it's Spring Break. North High School is in the area and had students been in the building, it would've had to be locked down.
