Omaha Police are investigating the city’s latest homicide after responding to a call to an accident scene.
Turns out the driver and passenger were both shot and trying to get to the ER when the crash occurred.
The victims were in the red vehicle which smashed into two parked cars on the BJ’s Gas Station’s parking lot at 42nd and Ames at 10 O’clock Saturday night.
Ofc. James Shade says, “Upon arrival they located two victims suffering from apparent gun shot wounds. Both of those victims were transported to Creighton in serious condition. One victim has since died of his injuries and police are still in the very early stages of this investigation.”
