Sergeant Jason Pratt succumbed to a gunshot wound he sustained one week earlier.

Sergeant Pratt was assisting officers in searching for a man that had fled from a vehicle after it was stopped by officers. As they approached the corner of 34th Avenue and Corby Street, the suspect appeared from behind some bushes and opened fire, striking Sergeant Pratt in the head. Three other officers returned fire, killing the suspect.

Sergeant Pratt was taken to Creighton University Medical Center where he remained in a coma until his death one week later.

Sergeant Pratt was promoted to the rank of sergeant the day before he passed away. He had served with the Omaha Police Department for 8 years and was assigned to the Northeast Precinct. He is survived by his wife, two daughters, parents, and brother. His brother serves with the Lincoln Police Department.

Friend of your Niece Kelsey...Jason. Just wanted to stop in and say hello and wish that I had, had a chance to know you. Your niece is a wonderful young lady and am glad to teach with her. You are missed every day. Thank you for making the ultimate sacrifice for the freedoms I have today. Rest in peace Jason.
