OMAHA, Neb. (KMTV) — Omaha police arrested Steven 'So Cold' Nelson Thursday in connection with a shooting that injured a 14-year-old girl on March 31.

Nelson was booked into the Douglas County Jail and charged with three counts of assault, using a gun to commit a felony and shooting at an occupied vehicle.

Officers responded to 43rd and Ohio Streets around 2 a.m. on March 31. They later found the scene of the shooting near 35th and Lincoln Blvd.

Medics took the girl to the hospital with non-life threatening injuries.

Nelson, the director of operations at B&B Sports Academy, is also an accomplished fighter. He was on the undercard for Terrence "Bud" Crawford's headlining welterweight match last year against Errol Spence Jr. Both Crawford and Nelson won their fights.

B&B Sports academy issued a statement Thursday night, which said the following: "Our Board is alarmed by the allegations and charges that have been filed against Steven Nelson.

We are not able to respond to them until further information and facts have been received.

Meanwhile, our focus is on the kids we serve at B&B Sports Academy and continuing our programming for them."
