A sixth man has been arrested in connection with the shooting death of 5-year-old Payton Benson.
Omaha police said Friday that Jacob J. Brown, 21, has been booked on suspicion of theft by receiving. The arrest is connected to a stolen Jeep Commander that police believe was involved in a gunbattle that led to the girl's death.
Payton was eating breakfast with her mother and brother inside her home last week when she was killed by a stray bullet. Her funeral was Thursday.
Five other men – three facing similar theft charges and two facing gun charges – have been arrested.
None of the men has been charged in the girl's death.
