OMAHA, Neb. (AP) — A man suspected in an Omaha slaying has been found in the Saline County community of Crete.

Omaha police said in a news release Monday night that 20-year-old Anthony Sanchez was arrested and is being held in Douglas County Jail in Omaha. Court records say he’s charged with first-degree murder, assault and two weapons counts. He’s suspected of fatally shooting 23-year-old Franco Gonzalez-Mendez and wounding his brother, Edgar Gonzalez-Mendez.

The court records don’t list the name of an attorney who could comment for Sanchez.

Police have said two police officers working off-duty at the Guaca Maya restaurant in south Omaha heard gunshots just before 11:30 p.m. July 15 and then found the two victims just north of the restaurant.
