Two people were killed and two more were injured after a shooting at a Bellevue, Nebraska, Sonic Drive-In on Saturday, according to police.

Officers received a call on Saturday evening, just before 9:30 p.m., of a possible bomb inside a truck at the restaurant, police said in a press release. Later, the call was updated to reflect that a shooting had happened.

When police responded, they found the four gunshot wound victims, according to a statement released by the City of Bellevue Police Department.

Two victims were pronounced dead at the scene. Two others were taken to University of Nebraska Medical Center for treatment. Their conditions are unknown.

The suspect, Roberto Carlos Silva Jr., 23, was arrested and booked at the Sarpy County Jail for two counts of first degree murder and one count of arson, according to a City of Bellevue Police Department press release.

Silva had recently been arrested after allegedly stealing someone’s identity and using it to buy food from the same Sonic where the shooting took place, police said in a press release.
