An Omaha man who came to the aid of an injured police officer was honored Friday at City Hall for his courage and willingness to help.

Mayor Fahey and the OPD honored LaDon Stennis for the action he took last month.

"There's an old saying about police officers,” said Omaha Police Sgt. Chris Circo. “You always know who the police officers are because they're the ones running to the gunfire. I think Mr. Stennis has a little police officer in him."

Stennis was riding his motorcycle when he came upon the scene at 42nd and Camden Avenue shortly after Officer Paul Latschar was critically wounded the night of August 20th. He tended to Latschar for several minutes until paramedics arrived.
