The homicide involved the death of Randy Noe Garcia-Ramos, 19, of Omaha.

Around 3 p.m. on Monday, Dec. 30, Omaha Police found the car near 23rd and U streets. A male and a female got into the Toyota and police initiated a traffic stop that ended in the crash.
The male, 17, and female, 16, ran but were quickly captured.
The male was treated for injuries possibly related to the accident and released. Both teens were booked into Douglas County Youth Center.
