OMAHA, Neb. — Omaha police have identified the Douglas County sheriff’s deputies who fatally shot a suspect in southeast Omaha and released more details of the shooting.

Police say the shooting happened Tuesday afternoon when deputies trying to serve an arrest warrant on 25-year-old David Anderson approached him as he was in a parked pickup. Police say witnesses reported that Anderson twice rammed a sheriff’s vehicle as he was approached, and two deputies fired at least nine shots.

Police say Anderson fled and soon crashed. He was taken to a hospital, where he died. An autopsy shows he was shot eight times.

A 19-year-old woman with Anderson also was treated for minor injuries, but was not shot.

Police say the deputies, now on paid leave, are 37-year-old Michael Jones, a 13-year veteran, and 33-year-old Scott Kuzminski, a nine-year veteran.
