Three hospitalized after two overnight shootings
15-year-old boy among the injured in gunfire
OMAHA, Neb. (WOWT) - Omaha Police officers raced to the area of N 60th and Evans Streets after they heard gunshots early Friday morning.
When officers arrived at about 1:18 a.m., investigators said they found a 15-year-old boy with gunshot wounds. Paramedics rushed the teen to the hospital with serious injuries but we’re told he’ll be okay. Detectives are looking to see if this incident was a targeted act or if it was random.
In an earlier incident, OPD states officers responded to N 40th & Miami Streets for a ShotSpotter activation of multiple rounds. When they arrived, they found evidence that bullets struck multiple vehicles and a residence.
Not long after that investigation, two victims arrived at the University of Nebraska Medicine Center with gunshot wounds, according to Omaha Police. The victims told officers that they were with a large group of people when they heard gunfire. Both injuries are said to be non-life-threatening.
