Families prepare to lay gun victims to rest

Audio: 911 audio from Saturday

A funeral Mass for Anthony Vazzano, one of the victims in the South Omaha shootings, will be at 10 a.m. Wednesday at St. Gerald Catholic Church.

Vazzano, 25, was mowing a lawn near 34th and F Streets when he was fatally shot Saturday. The gunman was later killed by an Omaha police officer.

The gunman has not yet been identified, Lt. Darci Tierney, a police spokeswoman, said Tuesday. Police were also looking for an accomplice.

Vazzano's family described him in a statement as “a loving son and brother and a friend to everyone.”

Memorials to Anthony Vazzano can be directed to his parents, Joseph and Joni Vazzano, and sent to the Heafey-Heafey-Hoffmann Dworak-Cutler funeral chapel at 7805 West Center Road.

Vazzano's survivors also include his sister, Samantha Remillard, and grandparents Sam and Frances Vazzano and Helen A. Visty.

Also killed was Pascual Bautista-Raymundo, 25, who was found in an alley near 3309 E St. He was shot multiple times in the neck.

His brother, Domingo, said Pascual was a respectable man.

“Everything he did, he did for his family,” he said. “He feared God in everything. He played soccer. He was a good person. No one can replace him.”

Services for Bautista-Raymundo were pending.

Aaron Anderson, 31, and Angel Cabrera, 46, were wounded in the shootings. Their conditions Tuesday night at Creighton University Medical Center were unavailable.
