OMAHA, Neb. (AP) - Police say a suspect in a shooting in northern Omaha has turned himself in.

Omaha police say 22-year-old Laron Chatmon Jr. was booked on charges Thursday after he voluntarily visited the department’s headquarters. A warrant for his arrest was issued Tuesday.

Officers responded Tuesday afternoon to a residence on the city’s north side after a report of a shooting. Witnesses told officers a passenger in a truck fired shots at residents.

No one was injured in the shooting. Chatmon was later identified as a suspect.

Chatmon faces several charges, including attempted felony assault and use of a gun to commit a felony. A message left for his attorney was not immediately returned Tuesday.

Additional information about the shooting has not been released.
