Two dead and two wounded in shooting

Another two were wounded in the shooting, while officers responding to a report of a possible bomb inside a moving lorry in the auto park arrived to find the vehicle on fire.

Roberto Carlos Silva Jr. faces two counts of first-degree murder, two counts of attempted first-degree murder, arson and four gun charges in Saturday's attack at a Sonic Drive-in restaurant in the Omaha suburb of Bellevue. The Omaha man was being held without bond ahead of his first scheduled court appearance Tuesday.

Multiple people have been injured and one person has been arrested following an active shooting and explosion at a Sonic restaurant in Nebraska as flames engulfed a vehicle outside.

Police did not give any updates on the condition of the two victims who were taken to hospital, and the motive behind the shooting is now not known.

Bellevue Police were called to a shooting at 1307 Cornhusker Rd. and found four people shot there.

Video taken by local station KETV-TV at the scene shows crews battling the truck fire late Saturday.

Police did not release any details on why the U-Haul was on fire, only that they believe the truck was in fact brought there by the suspect.

The Omaha Police Department's bomb squad was at the scene early on Sunday to check on a device as a precaution to make sure the area was safe, Mr Jashinske said.

Silva was arrested outside the same restaurant last Wednesday for allegedly using someone else's Sonic app to purchase $57 worth of corn dogs and hamburgers. Two were pronounced dead at the scene, and two others were taken to hospitals for treatment. Silva was released from jail on Thursday after posting 10 percent of his $1,500 bail.

Police say Silva bonded out of jail on Friday following his arrest on accusations of identity theft earlier in the week at the same Sonic Drive-in. None of the four were immediately identified.

Police say it may have been ignited by fireworks or "some type of device" but the cause is still under investigation.
