Two injured as gunman sprays bullets at northeast Omaha convenience store


A man and a woman were taken to an Omaha hospital with injuries that weren’t life-threatening Wednesday night after someone sprayed gunshots at a convenience store in northeast Omaha.

Omaha police officers responded to reports of a shooting near the B&T Convenient and Liquor Store at 2704 Florence Blvd. just after 8 p.m., a police spokesman said. Officers found Ronald Drake, 51, and Brandi Clanton, 31, inside the store with gunshot wounds to their legs.

Drake and Clanton were taken by ambulance to the Nebraska Medical Center. Investigators counted 23 spent shell casings on a grassy lot across the street from the front of the store, according to a police report.

Officers said there were five bullet holes in the front window. One hit the bullet- resistant glass on the front door, and two bullets hit the storefront’s brick wall. Two vehicles in the parking lot were also damaged.

Anyone with information is urged to contact Omaha Crime Stoppers at 402-444-STOP, at or on the P3 Tips mobile app. Tipsters can remain anonymous and may be eligible for a $10,000 cash reward for information that leads to a shooting arrest., 402-444-1067
