A 17 year old Omaha high school student is charged as an adult in the deadly shooting of a classmate and friend last Friday.
Douglas County Attorney Don Kleine says this shows how lives can change in a split second.
Christopher Spears is accused of using a sawed-off shotgun to shoot and kill 17 year old Dominique Hollie inside of a house near 54th and Spaulding.
Kleine says prior to the shooting, Spears allegedly made a sexual comment about Hollie’s sister. That is when witnesses say Hollie went into his bedroom and got the gun but put it back in the bedroom. Kleine says the argument escalated and Spears got the gun and shot Hollie in the face.
Hollie had been staying with grandparents in Omaha for the past two years. His mother lives in Mississippi and his body will be returned there for a funeral on Saturday.
