With the great weather reported by our meteorologist Jim Phillips at our account Omaha + Sarpy Weather, the July 4th weekend proved to be a busy one. Here are some of the highlights over the weekend powered by our friends at H&H.

Over in Johnson County, Kansas our JoCo team had an ATV rollover that left one person with critical injuries:

The Lenexa Police Department also agreed with the high number of illegal fireworks complaints:

Over in Council Bluffs, Iowa, our Council Bluffs Scanner team had an elderly couple trapped on a boat that ran out of gas. Crews were able to get them off the boat:

Council Bluffs M5 transported one patient to Nebraska Medicine with critical hand injuries due to fireworks:

And one male thought it would be a great idea to run from police on a scooter, unknown if he was eventually apprehended:

Back to Nebraska, our Sarpy County team covered several burn injuries due to fireworks:

There was also a house fire call where the garage was fully involved:

On July 2nd, a multi vehicle accident occurred at 168th and Cornhusker with one person transported to a local hospital:

On July 3rd, Omaha Police and Omaha Fire were dispatched to 65th and Fowler for a 16 y/o who was shot in the face with a shotgun. He was transported to a local trauma center and has injuries not life threatening but caused by shrapnel:

Just after midnight on July 4th, a male who was upset at the slow police response for a disturbance over a property damage accident, made a false call to police that he had been shot. The male was subsequently charged with false reporting amongst other charges and taken to Douglas County Corrections Center after officers on scene found he wasn't shot and said he did it to get officers there faster:

In the early morning of July 5th, Omaha Police and Omaha Fire responded to a shooting and cutting scene near 59th and Pinkney Street.
