A suspect is in custody after a shooting at a Sonic Drive-In restaurant in Nebraska that left two people dead and two others injured late Saturday, police said.

Officers arrived at the restaurant in Bellevue shortly after 9:20 p.m. after receiving an initial report of a potential bomb inside a moving truck at the scene. The call was quickly updated to a report of a shooting, according to the Bellevue Police Department.

Four victims suffering from gunshot wounds were discovered by officials at the drive-in. Two were pronounced dead at the scene, while the other two were taken to the University of Nebraska Medical Center, police said.

Authorities didn’t find a bomb at the scene but came across a moving truck on fire, said Lt. Andy Jashinske, according to CNN.

Police have not released the identity of the suspect, who was arrested without incident. Officials says there’s currently no indication of any other suspects.

“The victims will be identified after the completion of appropriate family notifications,” police said in a statement.

Police noted that an investigation into the shooting is at an “early stage.”

A potential motive has not been released by authorities.
