BELLEVUE, Neb. (AP) — Police have arrested two people in the deadly shooting of a teenager in Bellevue earlier this week and are looking for a third suspect.

Kalani Zalopany, 17, was found Monday afternoon with a gunshot wound at his mother’s home in Bellevue, just south of Omaha, police said. Officers found the unresponsive teen after someone called 911 to report the shooting. Zalopany — a Bellevue East High School — was declared dead at the scene.

Police later arrested Davion Snider, 18, and a 16-year-old boy on suspicion of conspiracy to commit a felony and suspicion of robbery. The Associated Press does not generally name juveniles charges with crimes.

Snider is being held in the Sarpy County Jail, while the 16-year-old is being held in the Douglas County Youth Center, police said.

Officers also are searching for a third suspect, 21-year-old Rashaun Faison, of Council Bluffs, police said Wednesday in a news release. Police said an arrest warrant has been issued for him, KETV reports.

Anyone who sees Faison is urged to avoid approaching him and to immediately call 911. Bellevue police explained that he should be considered dangerous.
