OMAHA, Neb. (AP) — Police say they’ve arrested two men in the shooting death of another man in Omaha last month.

Omaha police say 26-year-old James Sawyer and 27-year-old Adonus Moses were arrested Friday and booked into the Douglas County jail on suspicion of first-degree murder, assault and several weapons counts.

The men are suspected in the Feb. 5 shooting that killed 18-year-old Elijah Foster. Officers who responded to the shooting found Foster’s body near a vehicle in northeast Omaha. A 20-year-old woman was found injured a few blocks away, but police have not said whether the shootings were related or whether Sawyer and Moses are suspected in the woman’s shooting.
