Police ID man found slain in northeast Omaha

OMAHA, Neb. (AP) — Authorities have released the name of a 23-year-old man who was shot to death in northeast Omaha.

Police identified him as Antone Cooper. He was pronounced dead at the scene early Thursday morning.

Investigators say a wounded man showed up at an Omaha hospital about 45 minutes after the body was found. He was identified as 34-year-old Deon Jackson. Investigators say he was shot while in the general area of Thursday's slaying. Police say Jackson's injuries are not considered life-threatening.

On Sunday 28-year-old twin brothers were shot at a party a couple of blocks away. One died; the other was treated at a hospital and released.

No arrests have been reported in either of the cases.
