Wounded Omaha Police Officers Identified

Omaha Police release the names of the two officers in an officer-involved shooting in central Omaha.

They say Officer Nicholas Lanning is a seven year veteran of the Omaha Police Department.

Officer Joshua Moore has one year of service with Omaha Police.

Both officers suffered non-life threatening leg wounds in an exchange of gunfire with a burglary suspect late Monday night at a storage facility at 53rd and Center Streets.

The suspect, who was shot and killed, is identified as Steven Docken, who they now say is 38-years old.

The Nebraska State Patrol and the Douglas County Sheriff’s Office are assisting with the investigation.

The officers have been placed on paid administrative leave, which is standard procedure.

Under Nebraska law, a Grand Jury will investigate.
