A teenage boy gunned down in the streets of north Omaha. 
It's gut wrenching stories like this that haunt major cities in the U.S.
Another senseless act of violence is marked in the books.
Omaha police identify the victim Markeise Dunn, 16, who they say was shot multiple times and taken to Creighton where he died. 
"First I heard about five gunshots, said Michael Wilson, who lives near the crime scene. “Then I got up. I looked out my window and could see the back of the store from here. It was back by the steps, and I saw a young man, a young lady was holding him. I couldn't tell if he was shot or not. But then she laid him on the ground." 
It was hard to watch, Wilson said.
"I saw people taking their jackets off and putting coats up under his head,” Wilson said. “A lady on the corner there, she came and covered him up with a jacket, and I could tell he was shot pretty bad." 
In the five years he's lived at 24th and Pratt, Wilson says this is the first time he’s seen anything like this. 
"I wish everybody would just stop the violence,” Wilson said. “He was so young. The young lady, I felt for her trying to help that young man." 
Like many in the area who tried to save the victim, Wilson says he's making the possible suspect vehicle descriptions public, to help lead to the arrest of those responsible. 
"Two cars pulled off and went south,” he said. “One was white and one was red/maroon, like it had a hatchback. It was a short car and they both peeled off and went south on 24th street." 
Both of those possible suspect vehicles Wilson identified are sedans, the white one a four-door.
