OMAHA, Neb. — Police have arrested a man suspected in the shooting death of an Army soldier in Omaha.

Police say 27-year-old Larry Goynes was arrested and booking into the Douglas County Jail on Friday night on a warrant charging him with first-degree murder.

The warrant was issued for Goynes earlier Friday in the early morning Jan. 6 shooting death of 27-year-old Kyle LeFlore outside the Reign Lounge in north Omaha.

LeFlore was a staff sergeant in the Army who was visiting family in Omaha for the holidays when he was killed. His father, Kay LeFlore, tells the Omaha World-Herald that he believes his son was killed in a robbery.

It was not clear Saturday whether Goynes yet had an attorney.
