Spike In Shootings Since Start of CWS

Posted: 06/19/2012 - There has been a increase in shootings since the start of the College World Series. Since it started six people have been injured in shootings around Omaha. The most recent one was Monday night at 17th and Manderson. Four people were injured in a drive by shooting. And over the weekend, a shooting turned deadly after a 19-year-old was shot in the Old Market.

Darci Tierney. “We've kind of adjusted our resources in areas that have been hit with violence and have added more officers to those areas.” Officers are teaming up with other agencies like the Bellevue Police Department to put additional patrol in the Old Market during the College World Series.
