Omaha police on Sunday identified two men who were shot to death and another man who was critically injured in a midtown shooting.
A police spokesman said William L. Harnage, 21, and Jang Puol, 18, both of Omaha, were found dead Saturday night in front of a residence near 34th and Jackson Streets when officers responded to a report of a shooting. Trevel Caldwell, 21, of Omaha was taken to the Nebraska Medical Center with an injury that is not thought to be life-threatening, Officer Michael Pecha said. A hospital spokeswoman said Sunday that Caldwell was no longer a patient.
A white sedan was seen leaving the shooting scene, but police had not yet determined if the shots were fired from a vehicle or from inside an apartment. Officers think that the victims were targeted, Lt. Allen Straub said.
Sunday morning, Omaha police were still at the scene investigating. A white car was seen being towed from inside the crime scene tape.
