When the man came outside the house, police gave him commands, and then gunfire began, said Deputy Omaha Police Chief Ken Kanger. It wasn't known Sunday night whether the man had fired at officers.
Police said that the man initially refused to get out and that when he did, police saw a weapon. A struggle ensued, the deputy chief said, and the man was shot.
One of Omaha’s busiest intersections was shut down Friday evening as thousands of people took to the streets to protest the death of Minneapolis man George Floyd. The protest started peacefully but devolved as the night wore on, as police fired tear gas on protesters, and some vandals threw rocks at nearby businesses.
