Omaha man arrested after allegedly attacking and shooting man for face mask

OMAHA, Neb. -- Omaha police have arrested a man accused of attacking and shooting another man in the neck with a BB-gun for wearing a face mask. 

The incident happened Tuesday in the vestibule of a midtown grocery store as one man was leaving and another was entering. 

Police say one of the men was not wearing a mask and ran up to and spit on the other man, who was wearing a mask. 

A fight ensued, and police say the unmasked man pulled out a BB-gun replica of a pistol and shot the other man. 

The injured man said when he demanded to know why he was attacked, the unmasked man responded, "You're on the other team."
