OMAHA, Neb. (AP) — A 16-year-old boy who was shot earlier this month in north Omaha has died of his injuries, and two other teens have been charged in his death, police said.

Daheem Conley died in an Omaha hospital on March 18, six days after he was shot in an area several blocks west of Miller Park, the Omaha World-Herald reported.

Two 17-year-old males have been charged as adults in Conley’s death, officials said. One is being charged with second-degree murder, a weapons count and and possession of marijuana with intent to distribute. The other teen is charged with felony assault and a weapons count.

The Associated Press generally does not name juveniles charged with crimes.

Police have said officers were called to the area where the shooting happened shortly after 10 p.m. March 12. Arriving officers learned a shooting victim, later identified as Conley, had been taken by a private vehicle to CHI Health Immanuel’s emergency room.
