Shooting Victim Identified

Omaha Police are investigating the second apparent homicide of the week and the victims were found within a few blocks of each other.

The victim was identified Friday evening as 25-year old Victor A. Ford Jr.

Early Friday police were called to the area of 62nd and Taylor where they found the body of a man who had been shot to death. Ford's body was located in the yard of a home at that location.

This is only a few blocks from where another man's body was found near 65th and Fowler on Thursday.

Police aren't speculating on whether there is a link between the slayings.

The man who was killed Thursday has been identified as 26-year-old Kevin R. Pierce.
