One Dead, Several Wounded in Omaha Mall Shooting

Update II: The shooter has been identified as 20-year-old Robert A. Hawkins, a white man from Bellevue.

Update: 9 innocents dead and the shooter committed suicide. The guy under the bench apparently was not involved, but was arrested in the confusion.

Reports are confused; but seem to agree that at least one man is dead and several other people are wounded. Some reports say that a young black male in camo pants and a black hoodie has been arrested after being found hiding under bus stop bench. 35-40 shots reported.

You can listen to a live stream from Nebraska radio station KFAB here.

A Jawa Report source within earshot of the sirens says that there is no indication of Islamist terrorism at this time.
