A 22-year-old Lincoln man has been arrested in connection with a fatal shooting of an Omaha teenager over the weekend in Bellevue.

U.S. Marshals arrested Alfredo V. Dominguez III, 22, without incident at about 9:45 a.m. near 66th and Vine streets in Lincoln in connection with the early Saturday shooting death of 19-year-old Randy Garcia-Ramos, according to the Bellevue Police Department.

Dominguez was booked into the Sarpy County Jail on suspicion of first-degree murder, robbery, use of a firearm to commit a felony, possession of a firearm by a prohibited person and possession of a stolen firearm.

He is set to make his first court appearance in the case Friday morning.

The Sarpy County Attorney's Office charged Dominguez with the five felonies on Tuesday but asked to seal court documents detailing the allegations against Dominguez.

According to Bellevue Police, just before 3 a.m. Dec. 28, they were sent out on a report of a man down in north Bellevue just east of U.S. 75 and found Garcia-Ramos dead on a sidewalk. 

Capt. Tim Melvin said Garcia-Ramos had been shot several times, and his car was missing.

Investigators later learned his Toyota Corolla had been stolen earlier that night.

Melvin said Omaha police, who had been given a description of the car to watch for it, found it about 3 miles away on Monday afternoon and tried to stop the car after two teenagers, a 17-year-old boy and a 16-year-old girl, got in it and started driving away.

After a short chase, the teens crashed near U.S. 75 and Q Street.

Both were taken to the Douglas County Youth Center, where they stand accused of being accessories to the first-degree murder.

Melvin said Lincoln police spotted Dominguez on Thursday morning, which led to his arrest. He was less than 3 miles from his home at the time.
