A 44-year-old man has died after being shot early Saturday on the front porch of a residence at 2530 Hartman Ave. in Omaha, authorities said.

At 12:55 a.m., Omaha police responded to a radio call of shots detected by ShotSpotter in the area. Upon arrival, officers found the victim, Virjillo Gurrero-Quiros, with an apparent gunshot wound.

He was transported in critical condition to the Nebraska Medical Center, where he later died.

Omaha Police Sgt. Antwone Finch said at the scene that the man was possibly shot from across the street, which was lined with parked cars.

Police also were investigating two other early morning shootings:

» At 2:48 a.m. a shooting was reported on the 42nd Street exit of Interstate 80. Police were called to the Hampton Inn at 1401 S. 72nd St., where Wesley Waltermire, 56, told officers that he was traveling east on I-80 and exited at 42nd when a red vehicle pulled alongside his and the driver yelled at him, pointed a handgun and fired one shot. Waltermire’s front passenger side window was shot out. He had a small mark on his arm but declined medical attention.

» At 3 a.m., officers were summoned to Immanuel Medical Center to check on a shooting victim. Shyleah Archie, 20, suffered a gunshot wound that was not life-threatening, police said. Archie said the incident occurred near Nathan Hale Middle School, about 60th and Whitmore Streets, but authorities said she was not cooperating with officers.

Anyone with information on the shootings is urged to contact the Omaha Police homicide unit at 444-5656 or Crime Stoppers at 444-STOP, omahacrimestoppers.org or on the P3 Tips mobile app.
