Update: Three Injured In CUMC Shooting
Omaha police are investigating a shooting inside Creighton University Medical Center. Law enforcement officials confirm the suspect was involved in a manhunt earlier Wednesday.
A person outside the hospital told a Channel 6 News Crew they were told to leave the hospital because there had been a shooting. Contrary to initial reports, Omaha Police tell us the shooting was not in the cafeteria.
A witness tells Channel 6 News two female officers asked him where the pay phone was. He then heard several shots fired.
"I just stood next to the concrete wall because you never know where the bullets are flying," said Jeff Mumm.
Two officers suffered minor injuries. Police say the suspect was hit three times and is in critical condition.
Law enforcement sources tell Channel 6 News that the person shot is the same individual that Ralston officers had been searching for Wednesday morning. Omaha Police are not confirming that, but tell us at this time, there is no suspect at large.
The morning incident stemmed from a domestic dispute in Burt County. Officers say the suspect beat his wife and fled to her parents home. Officers tried to pull the man over but he managed to slip away after crashing his vehicle at 72nd and Q Street.
Creighton's Emergency Room is now open to patients.
How awful for everyone involved...
