Nebraskan Neanderthal Shoots Up a Sonic Drive-In: Leaving Two Dead And Two Critically Injured


A sonic Drive-in became the site of a fatal shooting in Nebraska late Saturday night.

The suspect, 23-year old Roberto Carlos Silva Jr. of Omaha was charged with two counts of first-degree murder and one count of first-degree arson.

Here’s how the devastating events unfold. Silva was arrested on Wednesday for identity theft at the same Sonic restaurant. He allegedly used the Sonic app to order $57 worth of hamburgers and corn dogs, according to the World-Herald. Police seized three firearms from Silva when he was arrested. He was released from jail on Thursday after posting 10% of his $1,500 bail.

Now authorities claim a motive is unknown, however one would suspect that Silva was none too pleased to have been arrested earlier in the week when he was just trying to get his hamburgers and corn dogs.

When police arrived at the restaurant late Saturday night, they had initially received reports of a potential bomb threat. The call was quickly updated to be a report of a shooting, according to the Bellevue Police Department.

The victims have been identified, those killed were Nathan Pastrana, 22, and Ryan Helbert, 28, both employees of the restaurant. Two other two employees, Zoey Reece Atalig Lujan, 18, and Kenneth Gerner, 25, were hospitalized and in critical condition. A fifth employee received minor unhurried and refused treatment at the hospital.

Sonic released a statement on Sunday, expressing that they are “stunned and saddened" by the shooting.
