Omaha police have arrested three teens in connection with the death of a man apparently shot to death and found in Millard earlier this week.
Davion Wallace, 19, and Daniel Camerlinck, 19, were booked into the Douglas County Jail early Wednesday on suspicion of criminal homicide and use of a firearm to commit a felony, the Omaha Police Department said. Caleb Lott, 18, was booked on suspicion of being an accessory to a felony.
Dustin Moheng, 21, was found dead Monday morning in a yard near the intersection of Ash and Weir Streets, police have said.
A police report does not indicate how Moheng died, but two of the teens were booked on suspicion of firearm use. The report also indicates that it appeared Moheng had been using drugs.

Court records indicate that Moheng had once lived in the area where he died. He attended Millard West and South High Schools, according to a Millard Public Schools spokeswoman.
His sister, Lois Moheng, 41, of Lincoln, called her brother a lost soul who had a good heart.
“A lot of us tried to help him,” his sister said. “He’s been struggling since he was a kid. He didn’t deserve whatever it is that happened to him.”
Lois and Dustin have the same father, Larry Moheng Sr. of Omaha, who is struggling with his son’s death and unavailable to talk.
“Dustin had a good heart. He really did,” Lois Moheng said. “He was kind of a lost soul as kids from a divorce can be. He was looking for acceptance.”
