OMAHA, Neb. (AP) - Police say an Omaha teenager gunned down in October was killed because of the color of his shirt.Sixteen-year-old Montrell Wiseman was shot and killed on Oct. 21. A 16-year-old girl also was shot and injured.
Police say five men charged in the shooting were going to steal alcohol that day, but instead decided to get revenge for the September shooting death of a fellow gang member. The group went to a rival gang area looking for anyone wearing red when they spotted Wiseman. Police say Wiseman was not affiliated with a gang.
The five men - Angelo Tolbert, Joshua Van Ackeren, Matthew Saunsoci, Adam Gamble, and Francis Cayou - were ordered Monday to stand trial. A sixth person, Nikole Gamble, is also charged, accused of hiding Tolbert from police.
