Shoplifting Incident Leads To Gunfire

Omaha police are looking for a man and a woman who were involved in an incident where a gun was drawn on employees of the Kohl's at 72nd and Pacific Friday night. 

Officers were called to the store around 5:30 p.m. to check on a shots fired call.   Two Kohl's loss prevention employees told officers a female and male were attempting to shoplift. The employees approached them in the parking lot where a struggle ensued and the male fired a shot and pointed the gun at the employees.  

An off-duty Omaha police officer shopping at the store and attempted to help the two employees.  No one was hurt during the altercation. 

The couple fled south in a black Chevy Avalanche with Illinois plates. It was found in Zorinsky Lake, and the man and woman are now believed to be in a white sedan.
