Dontayzhia Swift Death News: Omaha, Nebraska Teenager, Dontayzhia Swift Shot Dead in Omaha Shooting

Dontayzhia Swift Death News: Police have arrested a man they say was involved in the fatal shooting that left a 19-year-old woman dead in north Omaha on Wednesday night.

They also have a 16-year-old in custody but aren’t yet sure whether the teen was involved in the homicide.

On Wednesday night, Dontayzhia Swift was transported by ambulance from the scene to Nebraska Medical Center, with life-saving measures in progress. She was later pronounced dead, Thursday’s OPD release states.

She had been found suffering from critical injuries by officers responding to a ShotSpotter report, just after 9 p.m., at an address in the area of 37th Street and Grand Avenue.

According to the OPD, suspects fled the scene.

“Gang Unit officers responding to the call saw a white Chevrolet Tahoe leaving the area,” according to Thursday’s OPD report.

A short while later, officers said they had located the vehicle east of 32nd Street and Sorensen Parkway. They initiated a pursuit eastbound just before the incident was upgraded to a verified shooting report, according to the news release.

The short pursuit ended in the area of 41st and Spaulding streets, and both suspects were taken into custody without incident and brought to OPD headquarters for interviews.

On Thursday, Omaha Police arrested Markel Devers, 28, booking him on charges of accessory to murder and flight to avoid arrest.

The 16-year-old arrested during the investigation was facing charges of minor in possession of a gun, conceal carry without an ID, and conceal carry disclosure.

Authorities are still investigating this incident. Anyone with information that might aid the investigation is urged to contact OPD’s Homicide Unit at 402-444-STOP (7867) or submit a tip via the P3 Tips app or on the Crime Stoppers website.

“Anonymous tips leading to the arrest of a homicide suspect are eligible for a $25,000 reward,” the OPD release states.
