OMAHA, Neb. (AP) — Two 16-year-olds are now in custody in connection with the shooting death of a 14-year-old girl in Omaha.
Police say both suspects were booked Wednesday for first-degree murder. One of the boys also is accused of using a weapon to commit a felony. It wasn’t immediately clear if they have been formally charged.
Isabella Santiago died on Dec. 22.
Two men told police that a black car pulled up to them and people inside the car started shooting.
The injured girl was driven to a fire station at 25th and L Street. From there, she was taken to a hospital where she was pronounced dead.
