A 26-year-old Omaha man charged in a warrant with first-degree murder in the shooting death of Jarrod A. Maxwell turned himself in Friday.
Horace L. Amerson, of 6852 S. 27th St., had been on the run for more than five months.
Maxwell, 36, was shot and killed March 8 while sitting in a car outside the Family Dollar store near 30th Street and Newport Avenue.
Police say a car pulled up on a hill beside the store's parking lot. Amerson got out of the vehicle and allegedly fired multiple shots at the car Maxwell was in. He died at the Nebraska Medical Center
Amerson turned himself in at the Douglas County Jail.
He has been in trouble before.
Amerson served just under five years in prison for second-degree assault and use of a firearm to commit a felony in connection with a 2002 driveby shooting near 30th and Lake Streets.
Also arrested in that case with Amerson was Jonas L. Amerson, who was shot and killed last March in an unsolved gang-related slaying. A person familiar with the investigation said that the Amersons are related.
