Suspect in death of Lincoln Special Olympian is a felon with family ties to Nikko Jenkins (http://www.omaha.com/news/crime/suspect-in-death-of-lincoln-special-olympian-is-a-felon/article_32213659-57a3-51ea-81f2-bfe621648e3f.html)
Anthony Wells could have been in jail.
In 2014, prosecutors had tried the convicted felon on charges that he provided his cousin, Nikko Jenkins, with the shotgun that Jenkins used to kill three of his four victims during an August 2013 murder spree in Omaha. However, a judge acquitted Wells after a trial (http://www.omaha.com/news/omaha-man-acquitted-of-providing-shotgun-to-nikko-jenkins/article_436b80bc-e269-5987-8eec-f8c1cd43af35.html).

UPDATE: Arrest Warrant Issued for Murder (http://www.klkntv.com/story/31101235/lincoln-man-killed-in-citys-second-homicide-this-year)


UPDATE: Friends and neighbors of 25-year-old Joshua Hartwig are still trying to process the tragedy that took place early Sunday morning.

"You know, he can't be replaced," said neighbor Melvin Wells. "It's just kind of hard to hear that stuff happens to good people."

Hartwig was fatally shot outside an apartment building near 18th and Cornhusker, around 1:30 Sunday morning. We spoke with his friends and neighbors, who described the moments after shots were fired.

"I didn't know how close it was," said Alysha Anderson. "It sounded like it was right outside the building."

Anderson and her friend Stephanie Riley both say their heart sank when they heard the shots.

Jury finds Omaha man guilty of Hartwig murder



A Lancaster County jury found an Omaha man guilty on Friday of first-degree murder for shooting into a crowd and killing 25-year-old Special Olympian Joshua Hartwig just outside his dad's Lincoln apartment a year ago.

Anthony Lamont Wells put his head down as the jury walked out. Women stifled cries. Sheriff's deputies stood at every door and in the hallway.

Defense attorney Kelly Breen told the Wells family in the courtroom that he was sorry, and there will be an appeal.
