Teenage girl, young woman taken to the hospital after shooting in North Omaha

A teenage girl and a young woman were taken to a hospital for injuries after a shooting early Sunday in North Omaha.

Police were called to the area of 31st and Curtis Avenues about 3:15 a.m. for a report of a shooting. Tori Siyani, 15, and Jawea Booker, 20, both of Omaha, were found with gunshot wounds and were taken to the Nebraska Medical Center, a police spokesman said.

The police spokesman said the injuries did not appear to be life-threatening. A male juvenile, who police said returned gunfire, was arrested on suspicion of discharging a firearm in the city and being a minor in possession of a firearm.

Anyone with information about this incident is urged to contact Omaha Crime Stoppers at 402-444-STOP or at www.p3tips.com or by downloading the p3tips mobile app. Callers can remain anonymous and are eligible for a cash reward of up to $10,000 for information that leads to a shooting arrest.
