Since last Friday, there have been five shootings in Omaha.
Five people were taken to hospitals – some with life threatening injuries.
The shootings have happened across the city from west Omaha to the inner city. There has been no central point of activity and that has residents on edge.
Omaha police track violent crime throughout the metro and watch for trends. They are also allocating new resources to deal with the recent outbreak. Police also encourage residents to step forward and provide information on any of these crimes.
