OMAHA, Neb. — Police have arrested a 27-year-old Omaha woman accused of being an accessory in a deadly shooting earlier this month.

Police say Amari Ware was arrested Friday on a warrant charging her with being an accessory to a felony in the Oct. 21 shooting death of 35-year-old Damon Jackson, of Omaha. Police responding to a report of a shooting found Jackson’s body in a northeast Omaha neighborhood.

Online court documents show the warrant was issued Friday. The documents do not detail how police believe Ware served as an accessory.

Online records do not show that Ware had an attorney by midafternoon Saturday.
