A man shot in his car as he stopped to drop off his 3-year-old son at the boy's mother's Omaha residence Saturday afternoon has been identified as 20-year-old Delontay White.

White suffered minor injuries. His son Amari was not hurt.

White told officers he was sitting in the vehicle near North 49th Street and Ames Avenue around 4:15 p.m. “Suspect was on foot, came up, approached the vehicle and began firing rounds into the vehicle," said OPD Officer James Shade. "The victim was in the vehicle in the driver’s seat and his child was in the vehicle also.”

White, who managed to get the boy into his mother’s apartment and call 911, said he didn't recognize the suspect, who left the scene with unknown occupants in a dark vehicle.

Anyone with information about the shooting is asked to call police at 402-444-5867.
