More than a dozen Omaha Police officers were in the area surrounding 14th and William streets, which was blocked off while SWAT officers waited for a search warrant for a residence near 13th and Pine streets.



Officers entered the home around 2:45 p.m. Wednesday, but came out a few minutes later.


Earlier on Wednesday, Deputy Chief Ken Kanger said detectives in unmarked cars were doing "follow-up work" in South Omaha and noticed several men engaging in "suspicious behavior." The men drove off, he said, and the officers pursued them, calling in a marked OPD unit to assist.

Shots were fired at one of the OPD vehicles, he said, and one bullet did hit that vehicle.

No one was injured.

Several suspects were taken into custody for questioning, but some suspects got away, Kanger said.
