Two teenagers have been charged in Saturday’s fatal shooting at a Nebraska shopping mall. One man was killed and a woman was wounded in the shooting at Westroads Mall in Omaha that prosecutors said was likely gang related. The shooting around midday Saturday sent shoppers fleeing from the mall. A judge ordered 16-year-old Makhi Woolridge-Jones to be held without bail after he was charged with first-degree murder, assault and two gun charges. His older brother, 18-year-old Brandon Woolridge-Jones, was charged as an accessory to the shooting, and his bail was set at $75,000.
