A fight broke out between relatives of a murdered man and the man who had just been sentenced to prison for the Omaha crime.
Authorities say 34-year-old Antonio McNichols was sentenced Tuesday morning to 30-35 years for second-degree murder, five years on a weapons charge and 12-15 years on another weapons charge.
He'd pleaded no contest and was convicted of killing 26-year-old Davarus Neelon in January 2012.
Douglas County Courthouse officials say Tuesday's dispute broke out while the relatives were in a courthouse elevator.
Officers used pepper spray to break up the melee.
One person suffered a foot injury, and two people were arrested.
