OMAHA, Nebraska — The Nebraska State Patrol says two people have been arrested in the wake of a shooting that targeted state troopers in west Omaha.

The patrol says two troopers in a patrol car were trying to stop a car with a broken tail light on Interstate 680 early Thursday when a man leaned out of the passenger side and fired a shotgun at the patrol car, hitting it.

The troopers were not injured. Officials say another trooper soon stopped the car and arrested a 27-year-old Omaha woman. The man suspected in the shooting was not in the car, but officials say he was found about an hour later hiding in another vehicle.

The 34-year-old Council Bluffs, Iowa man was arrested on suspicion of assault on an officer and weapons counts.
