Police are investigating two Wednesday night shootings in North Omaha, including one in which multiple shots were fired into a vehicle, striking the driver but leaving a 1-year-old child uninjured.
Just before 8 p.m., officers responding to a ShotSpotter activation found Brian Huggins, 34, with gunshot wounds near 36th Street and Laurel Avenue. Huggins was taken to the Nebraska Medical Center for treatment of his injuries, which police said were not life-threatening.
Huggins told police he was sitting in a vehicle in front of his residence when a dark-colored SUV pulled up and a man inside fired multiple shots. Huggins’ daughter was in the back seat but escaped harm.
Shortly after 10 p.m., officers responded to a ShotSpotter activation at B & T Convenient & Liquor Store at 2704 Florence Blvd. and found evidence of a shooting. They learned a few minutes later that Gregory Garrett, 20, had been shot
