Jason "Tye" Pratt

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

He was assisting officers in searching for a man who had fled from a vehicle after it was stopped by officers. As they approached the corner of N 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 and killed the subject.

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 eight 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.
