OMAHA, Neb. (AP) — A third suspect in the shooting death of an Omaha man has been arrested in Iowa. Police say Omar Martinez was found in a Council Bluffs hotel Monday. Martinez faces charges of second-degree murder and use of a weapon to commit a felony in connection with the death of Blaise Benscoter. Benscoter was found wounded Thursday in an apartment and died a short time later at a hospital.

Twenty-year-old Sean Collins and 38-year-old Donald Bridgeford have also been arrested and charged with second-degree murder. Police say they’re still looking for a fourth man, 48-year-old, Donald Krisor, 48, in connection with the case.
