2 teens identified as north Omaha gunshot victims

The victims of a deadly shooting early Sunday have been identified.

Brendon Ford, 18, and D'Marco Pope, 17, were fatally shot about 1:30 a.m. at 2220 Saratoga St., where several people had gathered, police said.

One of the victims was found dead outside the house; the other was taken in critical condition to Creighton University Medical Center and was pronounced dead a short time later.

By late Sunday, police had not reported any arrests in connection with the deaths.

At a Sunday morning press conference about weekend shootings, Omaha Police Chief Todd Schmaderer said police believe the Saratoga Street shooting was gang-related and not tied to Saturday's fatal shootings in South Omaha.
