A man who once told a jury at his murder trial that he had been a member of the Victor Street Bloods since he was a boy was booked Tuesday on suspicion of first-degree murder, accused of shooting a person dead for the second time in his 37 years.
Alandus O. Warren Sr. is accused of killing Terrell A. Brown, 36, in a grass-and-gravel parking lot behind a strip of businesses near 24th and Sprague Streets, Omaha police said.
Brown was shot about 2:30 a.m. on June 5.
Warren has been jailed since three days after the homicide, when he was booked on suspicion of being a prohibited person in possession of a deadly weapon. He was later charged with that crime.
In October 1997, Warren shot to death Randall Blake Jr., a rival 40th Avenue Crips member. He was convicted of second-degree murder, though the Nebraska Court of Appeals ordered a new trial after it found Douglas County District Judge Michael Amdor improperly instructed the jury.
Warren pleaded no contest to manslaughter and use of a weapon to commit a felony and was sentenced in April 2001 to consecutive terms of 15 to 20 years and five to 10 years. He was released from prison in September 2012.
Warren’s son, Alandus Warren Jr., survived being shot on June 15, 2014, near 52nd Street and Ames Avenue.
