Shooting suspect captured after hospital shooting
Authorities have released the name of a suspect captured after a 30-year-old man was shot in the lobby of Omaha hospital. Police say 26-year-old Anthony Green Jr., of Omaha, remains in custody. Green was booked on suspicion of felony assault and two weapons charges.
His attorney from a previous case did not immediately return a call Thursday from The Associated Press. Police say Green was quickly apprehended Wednesday afternoon by a swarm of officers already inside Creighton University Medical Center.
They were keeping watch as a sheriff's deputy was treated for a gunshot wound in an unrelated case. The hospital was placed on lockdown soon after the shooting, which was reported about 3:40 p.m. Police have identified the victim as Otis Holford of Omaha. He was listed in stable condition.
