Police Sunday identified the Omaha teenager killed in a shooting Friday night. Four others were injured.
Eighteen-year-old Gabriel Carrillo died at Creighton University Medical Center after being shot at 14th Avenue and Carter Lake Boulevard just before 11 p.m. Carrillo and 18-year-old Leonardo Saaverda, who was wounded, were taken to CUMC by private vehicle.
Police say 18-year-old Jacob Spencer was taken to the Nebraska Medical Center in critical condition with a stab wound, but his condition has since stabilized.
Twenty-year-old Sara Spencer was treated at NMC for a stab wound and is expected to recover. Thirty-three-year-old Anthony Depatie was treated for a gunshot wound at NMC and is also expected to recover.
Neighbors in the area just west of Levi Carter Park fear what may happen next. Channel 6 News spoke with eight residents on Saturday and not one would go on camera, but most of them know exactly what is happening. The violence has been escalating and now they're bracing for retaliation.
One woman thought she heard three shots that woke her up, so there could have been more. One man didn't hear anything, but the lights from the police cars got past his curtains.
Residents said the murder is just the latest incident in what has been a three-year feud between a group of young people who live in the neighborhood and another group of young people who live about three or four blocks away. They say the feud started with fights and vandalism, but Friday night took it to another level and they don't believe that it is over, and that is what concerns them most.
They point to the house on the corner as the source of much of the trouble. The smashed window and blood-stained curb seems to back them up.
Many of the residents feel the same way. One says his children used to ride their bikes on the street, now because of the feud they aren't allowed to leave the yard without one or both parents being with them.
