OMAHA, Neb. (AP) A 26-year-old man has been arrested in connection with the shooting of a 6-year-old Omaha girl on her birthday.
        
Authorities say Eddie Poe is accused of being an accessory to a felony. Investigators have not described what role they think Poe played in the shooting of Taelor Fentress last Thursday.         

Douglas County Jail records say Poe remained in custody on Wednesday, pending $7,500 bail. Online court records say Poe also was wanted on a bench warrant for not appearing at a court hearing on misdemeanor drug and driver's licensing charges.
        
The little girl has left a hospital after surgeries. A bullet that went through a screen door at a house in northeast Omaha passed through her cheek and nose.
