Omaha police said one person has been arrested in connection with a fatal shooting Monday night.

Dennis Brewer, 21, faces a count of criminal homicide, according to police.

Officers said the investigation continues into the shooting at Gallagher Park, just across the street from Benson High School.

As officers arrived at the scene to investigate a report of shots fired, authorities said, two shooting victims showed up at Methodist Hospital.  One died a short time later.

The deceased victim was identified as Tielor Williams, 18.  The victim who suffered non-life-threatening injuries was identified as Joshua Schmitt, 22.


Schmitt told KETV NewsWatch 7 he and Williams were hanging out at Schmitt’s house Monday night when three friends came over and told them about a fight at Gallagher Park later that night.

Schmitt said he and Williams were in the park’s parking lot later when two vehicles arrived. He said all of a sudden they heard one shot, and then another four went off. That’s when Schmitt took off.

“I’m in a rush to get to the hospital. My friend, he wasn’t talking, he wouldn’t do anything. He was just limp in the front seat,” Schmitt said.

Schmitt said there were eight to 10 people surrounding his truck, most of them were people he has never seen before, including Brewer.

Schmitt wonders if the shooting was somehow a gang initiation. Omaha police said any information about whether the shooting was a gang initiation will likely be brought to light once the case goes to court.
