The Omaha Police Department has released the names of the officers involved in the deadly shooting at the Siena Francis House on Tuesday. 

Police identified the four officers as Eric Henka, Timothy Bauman, Jared Grayson, and Kyle Graber. 

Their experience ranges from two to eight years. All four officers work out of the Northeast Precinct. 

Investigators said interviews with the officers were completed Saturday morning. They added the officers' statements are consistent with witness accounts. 

On Wednesday, 54-year-old Steven Caldwell attacked two women outside the shelter at gunpoint. Witnesses say Caldwell refused to follow officers' orders to drop the knife before they shot and killed him.

The officers were paid on administrative leave after the shooting, which is standard procedure for any officer-involved shooting.
