Police release surveillance video of Bucky's shooting

OMAHA, Neb. (WOWT) -- Omaha Police have released surveillance video of the man wanted in a Monday morning shooting. A clerk at the 30th and Dodge Bucky's store is recovering as investigators work to ID the shooter.

Officers responded shortly after 3 A.M.

The clerk told them that a man wearing a mask, hooded sweatshirt and red pants confronted her in the kitchen area of the store. She said she pushed the intruder out of the kitchen. He then shot her and left.

The victim was taken to the hospital for treatment. She has been released from the hospital and is recovering from her injuries, according to a friend of the victim.

A Bucky's spokesperson said the company is taking care of the employee's medical bills.

"At this point, we're looking for any information, anyone who might know who the suspect is. Anyone that can help us out and call Crime Stoppers so we can follow these leads," Omaha Police officer Michael Pecha said.

The incident marks the fourth shooting at a local Bucky's in the past nine months, and the third at the location on 30th and Dodge.

"Anytime we see crime occurring in a specific area it's a concern. Especially violent crime, gun crime is our main concern, the main thing we want to tackle," Pecha said.

Those around the Bucky's were concerned.

Tosha Berry used to work the late shift at a gas station in Iowa.

"I've worked in smaller towns, but it did always kind of concern me when there was a bunch of arrests and everything happening," Berry said. "I know that a lot of gas stations don't have cameras on their pumps and if they are they're just on the pumps, not on the surrounding building. So I think if they just increase the camera security on the outside of the building, not just the inside, this would probably more preventable from happening."

The Bucky's where the shooting took place does have a security camera in and outside of the gas station.

Officer Pecha said there is only one witness at this time, and any help identifying the masked man is beneficial.

"When our investigators start looking at a crime scene, all they have to go on is witness statements and maybe video. If there's fingerprints we can follow up on that, but if not, we need help from the public in cases like this to help further the investigation," Pecha said.
