(AP) — Prosecutors say an Omaha man gave a gun to the suspect in four Omaha killings.

Anthony Wells was ordered held on $1 million bond Thursday. The 30-year-old Wells is charged with one count of being a felon in possession of a firearm.

Prosecutors say Wells gave a gun to 26-year-old Nikko Jenkins after Jenkins was released from prison on July 30.

Jenkins is being held without bond on four counts of first-degree murder in three separate shootings that occurred in the three weeks after he left prison.

Jenkins is accused of killing Andrea Kruger in a Douglas County intersection on Aug. 21, then taking her SUV. He’s also charged with the Aug. 19 death of Curtis Bradford and the Aug. 11 deaths of Jorge Cajiga-Ruiz and Juan Uribe-Pena.
