A judge Thursday denied bail for an Omaha man charged in the shooting death of 5-year-old Payton Benson.
Vincent Hicks, 20, is charged with first-degree murder on the legal theory that he intended to kill someone when the bullet struck Payton.
Prosecutors said Hicks and three fellow gang members set out Jan. 15 in rival gang territory, looking for someone to shoot. They spotted a rival gang member, got out of their stolen vehicle and fired.
The gunfire didn't hit the intended target. Instead, a bullet struck Payton as she ate breakfast inside her home about a block away at 45th Street and Bedford Avenue.
Three others charged in the investigation were ordered held on $1 million bail each. Adonus Moses, 22, is charged with conspiracy to commit first-degree murder.
Jaylen Montgomery, 18, is charged with discharging a firearm at an occupied dwelling, use of a weapon to commit a felony and felon in possession of a firearm.
Jacob J. Brown, 21, is charged with discharging a firearm at an occupied dwelling and use of a weapon to commit a felony.
Omaha police detectives caught up with the four men after tracing their postings on Facebook.
Two other men have been charged in connection with the investigation, but not directly with Payton's death.
Shaun R. Murph Jr., 21, is charged with possession of a deadly weapon by a prohibited person. Kevin Peak, 20, is charged with possession of a stolen firearm.
