OMAHA, Neb. -- The Omaha Police Department has released its account of a shooting that left a 23-year-old man dead in the metro.

OPD said its Officer Involved Investigations Team is investigating the early-morning shooting in the area of S. 30th and Marcy Streets.

Officials with OPD stated Sunday morning that officers responded to a 911 call of an adult male shooting a firearm outside of a residence just before 3 a.m. Sunday morning.

When officers arrived on scene, OPD claimed, they encountered 23-year-old Jeramyah Wilson inside a SUV parked to the rear of 3006 Mason Street. 

OPD claimed that Wilson was sitting in the driver’s seat of the SUV and that an officer was able to see a firearm in Wilson’s hand when he approached the vehicle. OPD officials claimed that officers gave commands to Wilson for six minutes and "offered assistance to him in an attempt to de-escalate the situation."

A release issued by OPD claimed that Wilson verbally threatened officers multiple times and after "he made a brisk movement toward the passenger side of the vehicle toward an officer who was behind cover," two officers fired their weapons at Wilson. 

Wilson later died at a nearby hospital.

OPD stated that a gun was found on the front driver’s side floorboard in the vehicle.Wilson was the lone occupant of the vehicle and no officers were injured. 

The incident was captured on the officers’ body worn cameras where all audio of the situation could be heard, OPD stated, though the department also noted that the cameras were partially obstructed visually due to the officers' positions.

The investigation is ongoing at this time. The Nebraska State Patrol and the Sarpy County Sheriff’s Office are assisting with the investigation. The two involved officers will be interviewed in the coming days and have been placed on paid administrative leave.
