Two Omaha Police Officers were injured during a shooting this morning at the Creighton University Medical Center in Omaha. Officer Jacob Bettin said on the scene that the officers suffered minor injuries.
“Both officers suffered injuries I cannot confirm whether of not it was from gunfire or what not but at least two officers are injured as a result of this officer involved shooting.”
The suspect, Jeffery Layton of Tekamah, has died after suffering multiple gun shot wounds. The Chase started when Layton’s sister in law and her mother called police from La Vista. La Vista Police say he had threatened to kill them. Police set up surveilance in La Vista, Layton drove by the mother’s house and a chase started where speeds exceeded 100 miles per hour. Police reports say the Layton crashed his pickup in Ralston and left his pickup with a gun last night.
