A 39-year-old Bellevue woman was wounded early Sunday when she was shot near a bar in the Benson entertainment district.

Police were called to the 1912 bar at 6201 Maple St. shortly after 2 a.m. for a report of multiple shots fired. Officers found Teleah Ervin near 63rd and Maple Streets suffering from a gunshot wound.

Ervin was taken to the Nebraska Medical Center in critical condition with an injury that was not considered life-threatening, police said. She was listed in good condition early Sunday afternoon, a hospital spokesperson said. 

Anyone with information is urged to contact Omaha Crime Stoppers at (402) 444-STOP, at www.omahacrimestoppers.org or on the P3 Tips mobile app. TIps leading to an arrest in a shooting are eligible for a $10,000 reward.

In early August, a man attending a concert at The Waiting Room, a Benson music venue, was shot and killed. No one has been arrested in the slaying of Michael Rowell Jr.
