Man charged with first-degree murder in shooting death of teenager in Omaha


OMAHA, Nebraska — A 21-year-old man has been charged with first-degree murder in the shooting death of a teenager in Omaha.

Dennis Brewer Jr. appeared in court Friday. A judge set no bond for him.

Brewer is accused of shooting at a sport utility vehicle at Gallagher Park Monday night. Responding officers say they were advised that two people with gunshot wounds had arrived at a nearby hospital.

Eighteen-year-old Tielor (TYE'-lur) Williams, of Omaha, was killed. Another man, 22-year-old Joshua Schmitt, also of Omaha, was injured.

Brewer has also been charged with use of a firearm to commit a felony. Online court records do not list the name of his attorney.
