An upset customer who drove a truck into the Chick-fil-A restaurant at SouthPointe Pavilions in south Lincoln is dead.

The suspect was being disruptive in the restaurant around 1 p.m. before another customer escorted him outside, according to Lincoln Police Chief Jeff Bliemeister. The suspect then drove his pick-up truck into the building, driving backward through the west side of the restaurant. Customers and employees inside began running out of the building. No one inside the restaurant was injured. 

Lincoln Police say the man then got out of his vehicle and continued to cause a disturbance. The uniformed BNSF agent then confronted the man, who police say made threatening statements to the special agent. Lincoln Police say the suspect did have a weapon. The special agent fired his weapon at the suspect, who died from his injuries on the scene. 

The investigation into the incident is ongoing. Lincoln Police encourage anyone who has information or videos of the incident to contact them at 402-441-6000.
