OMAHA, Neb. (AP) — Authorities say a 19-year-old man has died after being shot in west Omaha.

Police say officers sent to check a report about a shooting a little before 9 p.m. Sunday found Joseph Morolla, who had been wounded. Police spokesman Michael Pecha says Morolla died overnight.

Pecha says it's too early in the investigation to know whether Morolla's death was a homicide.
