Killed a Man

While police have not identified Gardner, social media lit up with complaints that Gardner shot 22-year-old Scurlock outside in front of the Hive Bar. In the video of the shooting reporting online, the footage is shaky but it shows a fight between two men, one white and one black, on the track.
Many people are being about and two people can be heard saying, “This N** got a gun!,” repeatedly. One says, “It’s not worth it N***— he’s got a gun!”
Then there is confusion around the men performing it hard to see what happens right before two gunshots ring out and the video ends.
Police issued a press release Sunday afternoon knowing the victim as Scurlock but not naming a suspect. However, they said, “The Omaha Police Department is not currently looking for any suspects. Researchers are in the process of analyzing all collected proof, video, witness interviews, and conferring with the Douglas County Attorney’s office.”
Around midnight Saturday, Omaha Police tweeted that someone had been shot at 12th and Harney and the suspect “was at large.” Not long after they updated that the “suspect was in custody.” Gardner’s name was approved by the Omaha World-Herald.
A bar called The Hive is at that location, and the 38-year-old Gardner is the owner of the bar and other local businesses, according to his LinkedIn account. Police have kept the name of the shooter since the incident happened at around 11 p.m. last night, though Gardner well recognized in Omaha and there were many witnesses.

Arrested and Charges

Omaha Chief of Police Todd Schmaderer said in a press announcement on Saturday that they made 51 arrests Saturday night. Most of those caught were white, he said.
Of the shooting, Schmaderer said they did detain “somebody who fired that weapon” and the person is still in police supervision. No charges have filed on the shooter. According to Schmaderer, it is the county attorney’s choice whether or not to press charges.

Social Media

Many friends posted messages of relief on Gardner’s Facebook page after he declared he would be on guard at his bar during the protests. After the shooting, many commenters began calling him a murderer who needs to arrest, while others stayed in support of Gardner, saying they’re pleading for him.
Protests around the nation over the last few days were sparked by the killing of a black man, George Floyd, by a white police officer, which caught in a video that showed officer Derek Chauvin kneeling on Floyd’s neck for some minutes until he rendered inert. Though Chauvin was charged with third-degree murder and manslaughter on May 29, civil unrest continues to grow around the nation with protests turning violent and destructive.
Many on social media are accusing Gardner of being racist and making Scurlock, while others say he was protecting his property and they would do the same thing. The witness who posted the video said Gardner concluded Scurlock as he was walking by.



According to the Omaha World-Herald, Gardner “proposed transgender women should not use the women’s restroom unless people have had their ‘members’ removed and their state identification changed,” igniting a “Facebook Firestorm” in 2016. Gardner told the paper, “The last thing I would want to do hurt a member of (the transgender) community, but people’s feelings going to hurt when you bring something up that sensitive.”
“I’m asking transgender folk to use the unisex … bathroom,” he said. “I don’t think it’s a big ask.”
Some people supportive of Gardner while others upset by his comment, which he said just supposed to just a comment to friends.
In September 2019 Gardner made the paper over. This time he arrested for not complying with police when an officer came to the Hive Bar on a call for a bleeding unconscious man in April of that year. According to the Omaha World-Herald, a security guard at the bar wouldn’t let the officer in, and Gardner arrested for combative toward the officer. That offense could have caused Garnder to have his liquor license suspended.
According to the paper, he told liquor commissioners it just a misunderstanding. He and the security officials were trying to tell the officer where to go in the crowded bar, saying, “I don’t believe it was combative,” Gardner said of the investigation. He added that yelling over the noise of the full bar might have led to that interpretation.
Gardner took off with a warning in that case.
