UPDATE 7:50 p.m.:  

Omaha Police have released a photo of the suspect vehicle and identified the shooting victims.

54 year old Donald Sandford, 34 year old Blake Green, 35 year old Laura Warbington, and 24 year old Marcus Evans were all wounded in the shooting and taken to Nebraska Medicine for treatment.  Police say their injuries are not life threatening.

The suspect vehicle is described as a green or blue 4 door, possibly 2000-2002 Pontiac Sunfire sedan..  


Four people were injured — one initially believed to be critically injured — in a shooting Wednesday afternoon near apartments located at 48th and Boyd streets.

Omaha Police officers on scene said just after 2:30 p.m., first-responders found four injured people outside.

All were transported to UNMC, police said. Two victims suffered injuries to extremities, and another was shot in the head, but was coherent and talking, OPD Lt. Jake Ritonya said.

OPD is looking for suspects based on witness and victim descriptions.

Ritonya said video obtained by police showed two suspects in a green vehicle; one suspect was hanging out from the passenger window with a silver revolver in their hand.

Police said they believe the shooting was a drive-by, and that those injured were standing on the front porch of an apartment complex when it happened. All four victims were found outside just west of the apartment complex, Matuza said.

OPD's gang unit was on scene, Matuza said, and OPD's felony assault squad and forensics teams were expected to be investigating the scene as well.

This is a developing story.
