A vehicle was on fire and a SWAT team was gathering at Sonic, according to KETV. Around 9:30 p.m., the reports began, but a lot of specifics are still unknown.
The TV station announced that it had seen six ambulances at the scene. The reports come two days after a man opened fire, injuring eight people at a famous shopping mall in Wauwatosa, Wisconsin. That man remains unknown and at large.
Police said the shooting was not random in that instance and resulted from an altercation, even though they were not more clear about the nature of it. There was a huge response by law enforcement to the Bellevue scene. There were at least 20 law enforcement cars responding to the scene, according to Omaha.com.
