Omaha Police arrested the two suspects in connection with the shooting at Westroads Mall Saturday afternoon.

Trequez Swift, 21, died at Bergan Mercy hospital after the shooting, while a female victim sustained a gunshot wound to her leg and received treatment at Immanuel Hospital.

The suspects were apprehended Sunday, hours after perpetrating the massacre. They were identified as 18-year-old Brandon Woolridge-Jones and a 16-year-old boy who was not named due to his age.

Witnesses described horrific moments at the mall, which is considered the largest in Omaha.

    “I can’t go into The Container Store at Westroads Mall in Omaha, NE due to reports of an active shooter. I’m FINE. I never even got out of my car. But seeing people run to their cars is unsettling. America, you’re broken,” another added.
