Sonic restaurant Shooting
According to the police, we dispatched to the Sonic Drive-In on November 21 at 9:30 p.m. for a “possible bomb inside of a moving truck parked in the parking lot.”
Officers discovered four people with gunshot wounds. Two victims were transported to the University of Nebraska Medical Center, and two more were deceased at the scene. KETV reported that at least one person was in critical condition. The victims have not yet been identified, and police don’t believe there are any additional suspects.
A video emerged that captured the explosion. Emily Tencer, a journalist with KETV, wrote on Twitter with the above video, “A witness just sent me this video. It captures a car fire and explosion in the Sonic Drive-Thru. This is the Sonic in Bellevue just off Cornhusker.”
The videos showed a vehicle on fire at that location, a U-Haul. According to KETV, the “original caller voices concern after seeing U-Haul truck with wires and pipes sticking out of it.”
