Pair Arrested After Shots Fired At Officer

A man and woman have been arrested after multiple shots were fired in an Omaha neighborhood Sunday night. 

According to police, Shotspotter reported eight shots fired near 39th and Pinkney around 9:30 p.m.  Officers went to the address and found that the home had been struck twice. No one was injured. 

Officers reported the suspect vehicle was a white Hyundai Sonata or Ford Fusion.  A gang unit officer in an unmarked police vehicle saw a white Hyundai Sonata with several occupants in the area of 32nd and Charles St. that he believed to be the suspect vehicle. 

The officer followed the suspect vehicle, and the rear passenger fired five or more shots at the officer's vehicle. Bullets struck the tires, but the officer was uninjured. 

Around 10:30 p.m. a Nebraska State Trooper saw a white Hyundai Sonata in the area of 38th and Grand Ave. They attempted to stop the vehicle, but it fled at high speeds.  The Hyundai was found shortly after in the area of 60th and Laurel Ave. 

Officers impounded the vehicle and transported four individuals to central police headquarters for questioning. 

The driver of the vehicle, 23 year old Kenisha Prentice was charged with two counts of accessory to a felony.   Police eventually determined that the person who fired the shots was 20 year old Jamar Anderson.

A search warrant was served at his home and he was taken into custody and charged with two counts of discharging a firearm near a vehicle, two counts of possession of a weapon during commission of a felony and one count of attempted assault.
