The shooting took place in January 2022 at a North Omaha sports bar that has since closed. According to police, the suspect fired a pistol during a riot in a bar.
Vincent Burns was shot during the incident and later died after being taken to the hospital. Two more people were injured in the shooting.
Burns’ mother spoke last year at a gun violence awareness event. “The man who once shot my son, one bullet in the chest, knocked him out,” Badja Pittman said.
Omaha police say the Homicide Squad, the Fugitive Task Force, and the gang assisted in Plater’s arrest.
