OMAHA, Neb. (KMTV) — The Omaha Police Department says officers responded to two different incidents involving armed suspects who discharged firearms.

The first incident occurred at 4304 Morningside Drive when officers were trying to locate a fugitive, 22-year-old Jason Bollig.

While officers were on scene, they say Bollig discharged a firearm and negotiators and ERU responded to assist.

At 5:55 p.m., they say Bollig surrendered and was arrested for "multiple felony warrants." Additional charges are pending.

The second incident occurred just before 7:30 p.m. when officers were called to 30th and Miller Park Drive to investigate an attempted felony assault report.

During their investigation, officers say information gathered led them to the area of 17th Street and Fowler Avenue.

After seeing the suspect vehicle, officers then followed it to the area of 8th and East Fort where "a passenger discharged a firearm multiple times."

Officers pursued the vehicle to the 5500 block of North 16th Street where two suspects were taken without incident.

The suspects:

  • 17-year-old-male: Booked at the Douglas County Youth Center for two counts of Attempted Felony Assault on and Officer, Use of a Weapon to Commit a Felony, Minor in Possession of a Gun, Shooting from a Motor Vehicle, Tampering with Evidence and Possession of an Unregistered Firearm.
