Norfolk man shot while in Omaha Burger King drive-thru


A college student is recovering after being shot in the face while in a Burger King drive-thru because he refused to give up his car to a would-be thief.

Omaha police say 21-year-old Alexander Dike was shot shortly before 10 p.m. Tuesday while at a restaurant in central Omaha near 72nd and Grover streets.  Dike told police that a man with a gun approached his car while he was in the drive-through and demanded that Dike get out of the car.

Instead of complying, Dike instead rolled up his window and then heard gunshots.

Police interviewed witnesses at the Burger King for more than two hours Tuesday, but hadn't made any arrests by Wednesday afternoon.

Dike, who is from Norfolk, attends the University of Nebraska at Omaha.
