Police: Nebraska man arrested for critically injuring man during Orchard Park shooting


OMAHA, Nebraska — Omaha police say they've arrested a man who shot and critically injured a man in a park.

Officer Michael Pecha says 23-year-old Carl Johnson Jr. was arrested Sunday for the Saturday shooting at Orchard Park. He is charged with first-degree felony assault and use of a weapon to commit a felony in the shooting of 23-year-old Josh Hintz.

Police say Hintz was shot during an argument involving a large group of people. They say Hintz was critically injured and taken to Creighton University Medical Center.

A hospital spokesman told the Omaha World-Herald Sunday that no information about Hintz's condition was being released.

Online jail records didn't indicate an attorney for Johnson.
