And it was because he "returned to the scene of the crime" :eek:

Driving through the crime scene tape, yeah, that'll make the cops a little suspicious.

Good that he was apprehended before anything else could happen. Can't wait to see what other info. they dig up about 'junior's' past: upbringing, being bullied...or was it a girl who didn't return his affections? Honestly I'm tired of these time bombs ticking around in public. :cuss: :fire:

Arrest made in Omaha drive-through killing

• Woman killed in drive-through


• Woman killed in drive-through
A 21-year-old Omaha woman who was fatally shot Sunday evening was a random target of a 19-year-old man using a high-powered rifle, Omaha police said today.

Kyle J. BormannThe woman, Brittany Williams, was in a car in the drive-through lane of the KFC/Long John Silver's restaurant at 7601 N. 30th St. She was shot in the head before 8:40 p.m. and died at the scene, police said.

About 20 minutes after the shooting, a man driving a white 1996 Chrysler Sebring drove through the crime-scene tape that officers had put up around the restaurant. He ignored police officers' commands to stop and drove off.

Police chased the car and the car stopped at 29th and Bondesson Streets, where the driver jumped out of the vehicle and ran away. Police said the man threw a high-powered rifle to the ground.

After a short foot chase, officers arrested Kyle J. Bormann, of 10727 Canyon Road. He was arrested on suspicion of criminal homicide and use of a weapon to commit a felony.

Omaha police allege that Bormann was inside his vehicle when he fired the rifle from more than 100 yards away from the restaurant.

Police said today that there were no indications that Williams and Bormann knew each other.

A man who answered the telephone at Bormann's address said he would have no comment.

At the restaurant Sunday night, police draped a sheet over the front windshield of a white Ford Focus in the drive-through lane.

The shooting shocked and frightened many who live and work in the typically quiet area.

Shantale Edmonson was among them. The cashier at the restaurant called into work Sunday evening, expecting to get an update on her work schedule. She did not expect to be told someone had just been shot and killed there.

"It's scary. . . . I'm just frightened because I work there and I'm pregnant," said Edmonson, 30. "You never know what's going to happen."

Amy Adams, 23, lives close enough to the restaurant that her toddler daughter's bedroom offers a direct view of the drive-through. Though she has experienced vandalism, Adams said she generally doesn't fear for her or her family's safety. She said she feels comfortable enough to walk neighborhood streets with her children.

"We've had windows bashed in but nothing like this," Adams said. "That's crazy."

Sunday's shooting death marks the city's second homicide of 2008.

Shawn King, killed just a couple of hours after midnight Jan. 1, was Omaha's first homicide victim of the year. The 33-year-old was shot while at a New Year's party held at Celebrity Beauty and Barber Shop, 2003 Lake St.

Last year, Omaha had 41 homicides, including a victim also shot and killed in a fast-food drive-through lane.

That victim was Ray S. Webb, 33, who was killed at midafternoon Aug. 25 while in his car outside the Taco Bell at 6206 Ames Ave. Antoine Young, the suspect, knew Webb and allegedly told a group of men before the shooting that he wanted to "get" Webb, according to court testimony.

it's a shame, Florence used to be a good neighborhood. seems to me we have too many idiots in omaha, and their making it seem like all males under the age of 20 in omaha looking for a gun are crazy. I went to a gun store the other day to look at an AR15 and the guy made it clear by his body language and the way he talked and tone of voice and what not that he did not want me to be looking at a gun.

Jeepers, did you see the mug shot of that kid? I'm betting that he won't have that defiant look after a few weeks in jail.

Delton Bormann said his cousin occasionally joined other relatives on pheasant hunting excursions.

Ummm... I don't believe this to be germane in the slightest sense. This comment is nothing more than a red herring attempt to demonize hunting in particular and gun ownership in general.

Pheasant hunting in Nebraska is as commonplace as fishing is in Florida. Being the relative is from Nebraska, the shooter is from Nebraska and the paper is in Nebraska, I wouldn't jump too soon to assume it was a slam on hunting.

Oh, okay. I gotcha. I rescind my previous comment.

What?? Since when did Omaha become a mini DC?? I was there in the AF from 92-98 and only remember hearing about a few the whole time. Good grief.

I'd love to know what this kid's motives were. No outward indication of being disturbed.

It was last summer---where there was a shooting every day in July-August---some leading to a killing----95% on the near north side----just that part of town ----the rest of city is pretty much a peacefull place----take the 8-9 deaths at Westroads off and you basically cut the total number by 25% or so.

Omaha is getting to be a very big city---not the town where you could get anywhere in 15 minutes---those days are long gone.

Omaha is becoming the Bridgeport, CT of the Midwest.

Anyone else see Sen. Chambers' bill to ban hunting in Nebraska? Thank god for term limits.

Omaha is becoming the Bridgeport, CT of the Midwest.

Bridgeport actually turned the corner a few years ago and has improved...

I am sure it will swing back soon enough though probably.

new haven, ct is quickly replacing bridgeport and hartford as the armpit of the state
