By: Melina MatthesMMatthes@kptm.comOMAHA (kptm) - A violent weekend in north Omaha, gun shots rang out in several neighborhoods. Police said four people were shot. One man succumbed to his injuries and died. Tonight his mother is speaking out. "Someone killed my son for nothing." Family and friends gather to remember Brandon Wallace, a former track star and northwest graduate. "They took my son. Somebody in that neighborhood decided the day was the day I was going to lose my child," Robin Wallace said. Police said he was shot and killed in broad daylight Saturday afternoon. "I know that I have one less son in the world." Neighbors said he was a very quiet man. He spent nearly every single day sitting on his porch. It's also the same place where he took his last breath. Those that were with him in those final moments said he was at peace and found God. "Whoever did this to me and my family needs to stop and take a minute cause there is nothing that is going to make it better for you. The police are out there and they are doing their job and they're going to find you." Crime Stoppers and the people living in his neighborhood encourage anyone with information to come forward. Crime Stoppers will pay you $25,000 if your information leads to an arrest. Family and friends said Brandon Wallace may have had an altercation with someone at a gas station near 42nd and Ames. He was shot at his home near 34th and Spaulding. Police said a man on a bicycle fled the area immediately after the shooting. If you have any tips for investigators call Crime Stoppers at 444-STOP.
