OMAHA, Neb. (AP) _ A 28-year-old man is recovering after being shot in northwest Omaha while he was driving with two young children in the car.

Omaha Police said the shooting happened near 144th and Maple streets, far from the neighborhoods where shootings are common, around 10 p.m. Saturday.

Police say Lafayette Carodine was driving south on 144th Street when a Chevrolet Impala started tailgating him. The shots were fired from the Chevrolet.

Carodine continued south with his 5-year-old and 2-year-old children in the car before crashing near Blondo Street. He fled the car but collapsed nearby.

Carodine was hospitalized but his injury is not believed to be life-threatening. The children, who were not wounded, are with their mother.
