OMAHA, Neb. (AP) - A 14-year-old is suspected of shooting to death another teenager inside a northeast Omaha home.
Police said 15-year-old Sylas Lieb was found dead Wednesday night by officers called to the scene around 7:15 p.m. He'd been shot in the chest.
The 14-year-old was booked into the Douglas County Youth Center on suspicion of manslaughter. The Associated Press typically does not name juveniles charged with crimes.
Omaha Central High School Principal Ed Bennett said in a note sent Thursday to the families of Central students that Lieb was a 10th grader at the downtown school, the Omaha World-Herald reported. Lieb has also attended Franklin Elementary School and Lewis & Clark Middle School, both in Omaha.
Counselors were to be counselors available at Central High for students on Thursday, Bennett said.
