OMAHA (KPTM) - A drive by shooting over the weekend has residents in North Omaha fearing their safety.
Just after midnight Sunday shots were fired near 40th and Fowler. A witness tells officers that a red vehicle drove by and fired out the window, striking a 21-year-old female who was waiting for her boyfriend in a parked car on the street. Neighbor, Charles Shuler says, "usually around our neighborhood stuff happens, but not directly on this block."
Shalanda Orr says she heard the gun shots just before her boyfriend's son came running into the house. "His son ran in the house and after he ran in the house, I kept hearing more gun shots and then I ran out here and he ran out here and his girlfriend was hit, and she got hit in the back. The bullet went closer up here where her shoulder is and then it went out," Orr says.
Evidence is still on the street. Broken glass is from when family members say the suspect drove by, shot thru the car, hitting Shampaine. There's even chalk outlines where the shell casings fell.
"Everybody needs to stop the violence, I hate violence because I'm about to cry, I'm about to get real emotional because my son he got killed four years ago and it drives me crazy, I hate violence and the person that killed him, I want him caught. My kid was into basketball. He never did nothing, he didn't have no record, he was only 15," Orr says.
"These young kids walk around popping you for no reason just to make a name of themselves and it's just getting out of control," Shuler says.
Police say the woman's injuries are not life threatening. They continue to investigate.
