North Omaha Shooting

By Julie Hawkins. CREATED Sep 25, 2013

Omaha, NE - Police are investigating a shooting on the city's north side.  It happened around 10:15 p.m. Tuesday at 33rd and Laurel.  

Neighbors called police after seeing several cars in the area and hearing shots fired.
When officers arrived, they heard even more shots.
A Chrysler Sedan ended up crashing into a fence.  Police tell us the driver got out and tried to run but collapsed.  He had been shot several times.  He is expected to be okay.
A passenger in that car refused treatment and police took him into custody for questioning.
A short time later, police pulled a car over and found a handgun inside, but are not saying if there is any connection.
