The gunman in a South Omaha shooting rampage was identified Saturday as Jorge Abraham Zarazua-Rubio.
Zarazua-Rubio, 25, had been referred to as “KK Doe” while authorities sought his identity.
Omaha police say Zarazua-Rubio was responsible for the spree that left two people dead and two critically wounded in a 30-minute span on June 15. It ended when a police officer shot and killed him.
Jorge Espejel, the Mexican consul in Omaha, said in an interview Saturday that Zarazua-Rubio was born in Mexico.
It was not immediately clear how long Zarazua-Rubio had been in the United States or in Omaha. He worked for an Omaha janitorial company, cleaning office buildings.
Espejel said the role of his office at the consulate now is to connect with the man's parents.
The father lives in Minneapolis and the mother in Mexico. The Mexican Consulate will talk with the parents on Tuesday. Espejel said the father will come to Omaha and the mother will be connected via videoconferencing or conference call so they can be interviewed together.
Espejel declined to name the parents.
The consulate hopes to learn about the man and his family as well as what arrangements the parents might want to make for their son's body.
Police likely will not be part of the interview.
A police spokesman, Officer James Shade, said Saturday it wasn't clear how authorities determined Zarazua-Rubio's identity. Omaha police worked with federal authorities to obtain an identity.
“Whatever they did worked,” Shade said.
At left is Pascual Bautista-Raymundo, 25, and at right is Anthony Vazzano, 25. Both were killed in the June 15 shootings in South Omaha.
Police had said last week that they were trying to sort out aliases the shooter may have used.
The gunman was not carrying identification, his fingerprints had not turned up in police databases and his .45-caliber handgun wasn't registered to an owner.
The coroner is awaiting toxicology results from the autopsy.
Police said the shooter knew his first victim but that he fired randomly at the others as he moved on foot through South Omaha neighborhoods.
The gunman entered Aaron Anderson's secured apartment building at 3104 Hascall St. about 2 p.m. June 15. Anderson, 31, was shot in the head and chest. He was taken to the hospital in critical condition; no updates have been released on his condition.
Angel Cabrera, 46, also remains hospitalized. Pascual Bautista-Raymundo, 25, and Anthony Vazzano, 25, died of their gunshot wounds.
Zarazua-Rubio was killed along Dahlman Avenue south of F Street about 2:30 p.m. after he opened fire on Omaha Police Officer Coral Walker, who shot him several times. Walker escaped injury.
