OMAHA, Neb. (AP)

        Authorities have released the names of an Omaha officer and a driver who were injured during a struggle in which a shot was fired.     

        Officers stopped a car Thursday afternoon on U.S. Highway 75 in northeast Omaha. Police say an officer struggled with the driver and the gunshot rang out. Police have not said whether the driver, the officer or someone else fired the shot.

        Police say the driver fled in the car and soon crashed. He was taken to a Nebraska Medical Center.

        Police said in a news release Thursday that he's been identified as 21-year-old Micah Taylor, who suffered a minor gunshot wound to his neck area. The officer's been identified as 49-year-old David Staskiewicz, who was treated for a minor injury not caused by a gunshot.
