Nebraska shooting at Sonic restaurant leaves 2 dead, 2 wounded; suspect in custody: police

At least two people were killed and two others wounded in a shooting at a fast-food restaurant in Nebraska on Saturday evening, according to police.

One suspect was taken into police custody following the gunfire at a Sonic Drive-In in Bellevue, Neb., a southern suburb of Omaha. Authorities said there was no indication of any additional suspects at this stage of the investigation.

"Officers discovered four victims with gunshot wounds," a release from the City of Bellevue Police Department said. "Two victims were transported to the University of Nebraska Medical Center. Two additional victims were determined to be deceased on the scene. The victims will be identified after completion of appropriate family notifications." 

Bellevue police initially responded to reports of a possible bomb inside a truck in the parking lot of the restaurant before the call was changed to a shooting. 

Witnesses reported a vehicle fire in the parking lot, which police have not addressed.
