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.

19-year-old gets 45-55 years for Sarpy County slaying

PAPILLION, Neb. (AP) - A 19-year-old has been given 45 to 55 years in prison for the shooting death of a man at a Sarpy County apartment complex.

Court records say Dakota Pirruccello, of Omaha, was sentenced Tuesday in Papillion. He'd pleaded guilty to second-degree murder and using a firearm to kill 23-year-old Brian Faeller, who also was known as Brian Faeller-Crom.

Prosecutors had lowered a first-degree murder charge in return for Pirruccello's pleas.

The Omaha man and at least two other people were involved in trying to rob Faeller on Jan. 15 at his southern Bellevue apartment when the violence broke out, police said.
