Eleven people are in custody and seven more are being sought as part of an effort to take gang members and illegal guns off Omaha streets.
Local and federal authorities announced Friday the results of a nine-month investigation that they said targeted some of north Omaha's most violent gangs. Dubbed "Operation Wipe it Down" – street slang for the illegal exchange of guns – the sweep took aim at known gang members and those who helped arm them with handguns, rifles and shotguns.
