Omaha teen won’t be charged in dad’s shooting

OMAHA, Neb. -- An Omaha teenager won't be charged in the shooting of his own father.

Douglas County Attorney Don Kleine said Wednesday that 19-year-old Malik Williams, who was arrested Sunday after his father was shot, won't be charged at this time.

Williams was arrested at the scene of a midnight shooting near S. 98th Avenue and Mockingbird Drive.

The man was taken to Bergan Mercy with non-life-threatening injuries.

Williams was initially facing charges of first-degree felony assault.

Kleine says, based on theĀ evidence, the actions Williams took were justified under the law.

According to an Omaha Police report, Williams said he shot his father after his dad attacked his mom.
