Police identify man suspected of forcing his way into an Omaha home.
Omaha Police identify the man killed in a shooting at 16th and Drexel Thursday evening as 42 year old Raul Rivas of Omaha.
Douglas County Attorney Don Kleine says the homeowners were justified in the shooting and will not face charges.
A would-be home intruder was shot and killed by the homeowner late Thursday night near 16th and Drexel.
Around 11:30pm a man started pounding on the door of the south Omaha home. When a woman went to answer the door, the man allegedly tried to force his way into the residence. The husband of the woman came downstairs and shot the man. He was taken to an Omaha hospital in critical condition. Initially he was expected to live, but later died.
Police have not yet released any names of the parties involved in the incident.
