OMAHA, Neb. (AP) - Omaha police say they have arrested a man in the shooting death of a woman whose body was found in a northeast Omaha home.

Capt. Kerry Neumann says Wednesday that police arrested 31-year-old Reginald Briggs on Tuesday on suspicion of numerous charges, including first-degree murder, use of a firearm to commit a felony and being a prohibited person in possession of a firearm.

The charges stem from the discovery Friday of the body of 31-year-old Teresa Longo.

Neumann told the Omaha World-Herald (https://bit.ly/1JTiAgq) that Longo was “the victim of a very brutal murder.”

On Wednesday, police recruits and firefighters were searching for a weapon near a park.



It wasn’t clear if Briggs has a lawyer who can answer question about the charges.
