Police: Man who confronted Omaha police with gun shot dead

OMAHA, Neb. (AP) — Police say an Omaha man who was being served with a removal and protection order was fatally shot by an officer when he confronted police at his door with a gun.

The Omaha Police Department said in a news release that the shooting happened Wednesday afternoon at an apartment complex in southwest Omaha.

The release says two police officers were sent to help a Douglas County process server serve papers on 39-year-old Jacob Jamrozy.

Police say when officers knocked on his door, Jamrozy opened the door holding a shotgun, and police shouted at him to drop it. Police say he instead raised the gun toward one of the officers, who shot him. Jamrozy was declared dead at the scene. No officers were hurt.
