Police Find Robbery Suspect In Creek

What began as a possible shooting call turned into a chase through an Omaha creek Wednesday morning.

Omaha Police responded to 2247 Benson Gardens Boulevard to investigate a report of a shooting. Officers arrived and spoke with 22-year-old Lorne Hart, who said he was not injured and had not been shot. 

Hart did tell officers that a man had pointed a gun at him and his brother and then fired a shot in the air during a robbery attempt. The gunman fled from the area near 78th and Blondo and was spotted by Able-1 running along nearby Cole Creek. 

Officers made their way into the creek and arrested 22 year old Travon Gren also found the gun that he had been in possession of. 

Green was transported to the Nebraska Medical Center for an injury he sustained while running from the scene. He will be booked for two counts of Robbery, two counts of Use of a Weapon to Commit a Felony, Possession of a Weapon by a Prohibited Person, Fugitive from Justice and other local warrants. 

 During the investigation, officers determined that Green's girlfriend, 23 year old Bailey Parsons, was involved in planning the robbery. Officers located Parsons, and booked her for two counts of Robbery and two counts of Child Neglect.
