Omaha Police investigate several weekend shootings
OMAHA, Neb. (AP) — Omaha police are investigating three different weekend shootings that injured six people.
Omaha police Officer Michael Pecha says none of the injuries are expected to be life threatening. All three shootings happened early Sunday.
The first shooting happened around 3 a.m. on Interstate 80 after one vehicle nearly struck a slow-moving car. Thirty-seven-year-old Ray Robinson Junior was wounded after the occupants of both vehicles argued.
About 4:15 a.m., 22-year-old Dejuan Tipler was found with a gunshot wound inside an SUV that collided with a tree.
A few minutes later, gunshots were reported in northeast Omaha, and four people came to the hospital. The injured people were 29-year-old Braylon Hardeman, 27-year-old Darnell Matthews, 23-year-old Delvonne Cross and 31-year-old Rodney Landrum.
