Omaha police said a 24-year-old man suffered critical injuries Tuesday night when he was shot multiple times near 33rd Street and Laurel Avenue.
Kaquan Amerson was taken to the Nebraska Medical Center. His injuries were not believed to be life-threatening, said Lt. Catherine Milone.
Officers were called to the area about 10:15 p.m.
Milone said several vehicles were reported in the area, including a Chrysler sedan that crashed into a fence at the intersection. Douglas County 911 emergency dispatchers said they received reports that vehicles in the area had exchanged gunfire.
Milone said Amerson got out of the Chrysler and tried to run, then fell down. He had been shot several times. Milone said numerous shell casings were found in the street.
Police took three people in for questioning, including a passenger in the Chrysler.
Meanwhile, a 27-year-old woman told police Tuesday night that she was shot near 55th Street and Ames Avenue.
About 9:50 p.m., officers responded to a radio call about gunshots in the area. Police were unable to locate any witnesses, victims, or evidence of a crime scene.
About 20 minutes later, however, police were sent to an Omaha hospital to investigate reports of a walk-in shooting victim. The victim, Chafone Gould, told police that she was at 55th and Ames when she heard multiple gunshots. Gould said she then felt pain and realized that she had been struck by the gunfire.
Police said investigations into both shootings were continuing.
