According to official police statements, on the evening of November 22, 2020, the police received a message that explosives were in the truck in the parking lot of the Sonic fast-food restaurant. The police quickly reacted to the message and drove to the specified address. But, after a few minutes, they received a message about the shooting at the same address.
Arriving at the scene, the police found a burning truck and four people with gunshot wounds. Unfortunately, two of them were already dead. Two people with injuries were taken to a local hospital. The police have not named the victims while the investigation is ongoing.
The police promptly responded to the incident and began a criminal investigation.
During the investigation, police indicted a 23-year-old man, Roberto Carlos Silva Jr., from Omaha.
The next day, the man was imprisoned without the right to bail until the first court hearing. He is accused of first-degree murder and deliberate arson.
The police took all possible precautions to keep people safe. Therefore, a group of sappers checked the site for explosive devices. Fortunately, they found nothing dangerous.
Nebraska police say Silva has already been jailed for using someone else’s account on a restaurant app. He used a false name for restaurant orders but was scouted and arrested. On November 19, 2020, he posted a bail of $ 1,500 and was released.
Police claim that they have strong evidence of Silva’s guilt since they seized four firearms during a search of the apartment. It gives reason to charges against Silva of first-degree murder and arson.
