Omaha police investigate shooting death of 21-year-old

Omaha police are investigating an overnight shooting in the northern part of the city that claimed the life of 21 year old Brandon Samuels.

Police were called to a home at 24th and Ida around 2:45 after shots were fired at a large party. Samuels was shot in the neck and rushed to a hospital where he later died. Another person was also hospitalized after an apparent assault.

Witnesses are being questioned by police but there have been no arrests.

Samuels had a history with Omaha police and was scheduled to be in court later this month for a traffic violation.
