Police say a man suspected of firing a gun at an apartment complex was taken to the hospital for a mental evaluation after the incident put a nearby school on lockdown.
The man, later identified as David Sauer, is accused of firing a gun, sending bullets thro his apartment wall, a glass door and into a nearby garage, according to police.
Investigators said Sauer was taken into custody near 87th and I street and taken to a hospital for evaluation.
KMTV has obtained a copy of the email Millard Public Schools sent to parents:
" Parents and Guardians,
Millard North was contacted by the Douglas County Sheriff this morning shortly after 7:30 AM. Reportedly, a suspect shot out some windows at the apartments across the street following a disturbance at an overnight party. The armed suspect is at large, and we have no reason to believe that Millard North is a target. We are cooperating with local law enforcement officials, and we are following our Lock-down procedures until further notice. We will keep you posted. Thank you."
A neighbor at Pacific West Apartments, near 141st and Pierce streets, says she heard about three gunshots around 6:30 a.m.
Police are investigating the scene where a glass sliding door appears to have been shot out. Investigators are also looking for evidence in a nearby garage unit.
Millard North High School is on lockdown Thursday morning, according to Omaha 911 dispatchers.
They said it was because of a nearby disturbance, but would not give anymore information.
District officials would not release any information. A Twitter account for Millard Public Schools posted the following:
“Police situation near Millard North, School working to get students in as fast as possible.”
Shortly after, they posted two more tweets:
"Police situation near Millard North is OVER."
"Millard schools on the north side are on a normal schedule. Police situation near Millard North is resolved."
KMTV has learned a person has been taken into custody.
