Police investigating a report of gunshots being fired Friday night found a suspect laying in the grass and holding a gun. Twenty-eight-year-old Rodney Lillard was ordered to drop the weapon, which he did, and he was arrested.
Witnesses directed officers to Lillard at a location west of North 63rd Street and south of Hartman Avenue in Omaha just before midnight.
Lillard was taken to Immanuel Medical Center because he was heavily under the influence of drugs. He is a convicted felon and was charged with being a prohibited person in possession of a handgun and unlawful discharge of a firearm.
