This undated photo provided by the Sarpy County Jail shows Roberto Carlos Silva of Omaha, who was arrested in connection to an attack at a Nebraska fast food restaurant in which two people were shot and killed and two were wounded. Silva was booked into jail early Nov. 22 on suspicion of first-degree homicide and arson charges in the attack Saturday night at a Sonic Drive-in in the Omaha suburb of Bellevue.

BELLEVUE — The Nebraska fast-food restaurant where two workers were killed and two others wounded during a November shooting plans to reopen this week.

The owner of the Sonic Drive-in restaurant in Bellevue said Monday that the remodeled restaurant will reopen Wednesday for the first time since the Nov. 21 shooting.

The restaurant’s owner, Bryant Morrison, said 80% of his workers plan to return when it reopens. Morrison also said he plans to create a memorial at the Sonic later this year to honor the employees who were killed and wounded during the shooting.

Roberto Carlos Silva Jr., 23, continues to be held without bond in connection with the shooting. He has been charged with two counts of first-degree murder, two counts of attempted murder and arson for setting fire to a U-Haul truck he drove to the restaurant before the shooting.

The U-Haul was ablaze when officers arrived at the restaurant and found the four victims. Silva was unarmed when he was arrested nearby a short time later.
