Drive-By Shooting Injures Three People

10:00 |


Omaha police respond to another shooting this weekend; this time at 36th and Martin Avenue where three people were shot late Sunday afternoon. Officers were called to a home in the area just before 5 p.m. First responders found three people with gunshot wounds and took them to the hospital. "Right now they're in critical condition," said Lt. Staci Witkowski. "We are still looking for suspects and a suspect vehicle. We're trying to lock down a description on that." Paramedics rushed the victims to a hospital as officers investigated the scene and a blanket of bullets left behind. "It appears to be a drive-by and obviously there are numerous shell casings," said Lt. Witkowski. "We were sitting on the couch and all of a sudden I heard automatic weapon fire," described neighbor Isaiah Burse, Junior. Burse and his wife, Debbie, then hid. "There was between 8 to 12 shots," said Debbie. "I refused to open my door. Probably a minute later, sirens everywhere, and I peeked out the door and they were just stopped right here on the corner." Police had not reported any suspects in custody as of Sunday night, providing no comfort to neighbors.
