According to other reports, Brandon Samuels bravely tried to protect a woman from her violent Black boyfriend who was attempting to drag her out of the party by her hair.

Omaha police have made an arrest in the shooting death of 21 year old Brandon Samuels.

Police booked Laron Jones Saturday for first degree murder and weapons charges.

Samuels was shot while at a house party near 24th and Ida just before 3:00 A.M. Friday. He died from his injuries at the hospital.

After the White man had stepped in to protect the woman, Laron Jones left the party with two friends only to return later and start firing shots off into the crowd, one of which hit Brandon Samuels who died later that night at the hospital.

According to family members, a fight started at the party and the suspect pulled out a gun. Samuels was standing on the porch and was struck by a stray bullet.

Friday night family and friends prayed together near the scene. Samuels’ mother said her son was getting ready to joining the military.

Samuels is the forth homicide victim this year in Omaha.
