Omahan Kyle McCroy may have been killed in late March because of a girl, Omaha police say.
William Bush, a 25-year-old alleged gang member, was ordered Monday to stand trial for first-degree murder in connection with the shooting of McCroy, 30. Bush also is charged with use of a weapon to commit a felony and being a felon in possession of a firearm.
Officer Candace Phillips testified at a preliminary hearing that investigators “heard from the street that Bush was involved’’ in McCroy’s death and that the two men were “connected through a girl.’’
A witness later identified Bush as the man who walked into 5817 Florence Blvd. the night of March 28.
The witness told police that she ran from the house when the assailant displayed a long-barreled, black handgun. Gunfire followed, and police found McCroy with four bullet wounds, one to the back of his head. An autopsy indicated that McCroy died of the head wound. -– Jay Withrow
