Omaha Man Arrested After Threatening To Shoot Two Men

An Omaha man is behind bars after he allegedly pointed a gun at two other men and threatened to shoot them.

According to Omaha Police reports, officers were called to the area of 37th & Kansas on March 26th shortly after 9am for a disturbance.

Two men told officers the suspect was involved in an assault of one of the men. The two followed the suspect's car a few blocks from where the assault occurred.

The suspect pulled into a driveway, got out with a gun, pointed it at the men and according to the report told them “On my hood.” I'll shoot you.”

The suspect was later located at a north Omaha dollar store where employees identified the suspect as 22-year-old Gerald Robinson.

Officers told Robinson to put up his hands. Robinson appeared to make an aggressive move toward his pocket or waistband when an officer grabbed his hands.

Robinson was subdued by officers.

Police later found a stolen black Ruger .44 Magnum handgun.

Robinson was charged with obstruction, possession of a stolen firearm, terroristic threats and possession of a weapon to commit a felony.

He was booked into the Douglas County Corrections Center.
