Omaha Police rush to the Gifford Park Neighborhood after a caller reported a man, walking his dog, and carrying a big gun. The call was made on Monday, August 3rd shortly after 5PM.
It did not take officers long to track down a suspect. When they approached the 51-year old man he had his dog on a leash, and had a silver handgun in a leather holster around his waist.
When officers approached the man he allegedly told them he carries the gun around town on a regular basis, and it was his way of making a political statement.
He then asked to speak to the officers' supervisor.
After speaking with an Omaha Police Sergeant, James Medlock, 51 was cited and released. His handgun was confiscated.
