OMAHA, Neb. (KMTV) — The Omaha Police Department posted on their Facebook Monday that they're aware of a fake online story published by City News reporting an active shooting threat in Omaha.

The website attributes information to OPD and says a 32-year-old man was heading to Westroads Mall and arrested with two assault weapons.

Omaha Police say the incident did not happen, but gives the department an opportunity to discuss training to prepare for critical incidents.
