A 20-year-old Omaha man was arrested on suspicion of second-degree assault Sunday in connection with the shooting of a teenager near 59th Street and Bedford Avenue.

Thomas Wilson, 16, was taken to the Nebraska Medical Center with a gunshot wound about 3:30 a.m., police said. His injury did not appear to be life-threatening, and he was in stable condition Sunday afternoon.

Investigators determined that the males were handling a firearm when the teenager was shot. The 20-year-old stayed at the scene and was later booked into the Douglas County Jail.
