After a man was shot and critically injured in front of a west Omaha house early Friday, his father fired back at the assailant.
Bullets flew, blasting through the walls of a house across the street and narrowly missing a woman's head.
Bryan J. Hall, 30, was shot at least twice in his abdomen while talking with a man on the porch of the house where Hall lives with his father and grandmother.
Hall was rushed to Creighton University Medical Center with critical injuries, though it appeared he would survive, Omaha Police Sgt. Pam Volk said. He had at least two wounds to his abdomen.
The shooting was reported at 12:06 a.m. at 1605 S. 168th Ave., in the Rose Garden Estates subdivision.
After Hall was shot, his father, Richard Hall, then fired off some .22 caliber rounds from a rifle at the assailant as he ran off, Volk said, but there were "no indications that he hit the suspect."
A number of rounds hit a house across the street. One missed Jennifer Hiner's head by just over a foot.
The Hiners had relatives in from out of town and were playing cards when shots started slamming through their home.
Jennifer Hiner was upstairs, bent over by the master bedroom closet getting a blow-up bed ready for some of the children in the home.
"We were playing cards and all of sudden everyone is on the floor and bullets are flying through the house," said Fred Hiner.
Hiner ran outside and saw a dirty white or tan Honda parked up the street tear off. The car, possibly a Civic, had a loud muffler and roared off north on 168th Avenue.
Volk said there appeared to be at least one other person in the car.
