OMAHA, Neb. (AP) — Police have arrested a teenager suspected of fatally shooting a man at a store in east Omaha.


The Omaha Police Department said Tuesday that the 17-year-old boy has been taken to the Douglas County Youth Center on suspicion of murder and use of a gun to commit a felony. The Associated Press generally doesn't name juveniles suspected of crimes.


The shooting occurred around 7:30 p.m. Oct. 2 at the Tobacco & Vapes store. Arriving officers found the victim inside the store. He's been identified as 21-year-old Bahy Altairi. Authorities say he worked there for his father.
