Sonic Shooting Suspect Pleads Not Guilty

Posted: Updated:

The suspect in the Sonic shooting appears in court.

Justin Delacruz, 38, pleads not guilty to two counts of attempted deliberate homicide, robbery, criminal endangerment, and criminal possession of dangerous drugs.

On July 6, police say Delacruz attempted to follow an employee into the Sonic restaurant before it opened. Court documents indicate Delacruz demanded money from the Sonic employee and then fired multiple shots at the employee while the employee was returning to the Sonic store from Albertson’s, and again, as the employee was trying to get back into the restaurant.

One of those shots shattered the door.

Officer Shane Weinreis was at the Tractor Supply parking lot monitoring traffic, when he heard the gunshots and responded. He and Delacruz were involved in a shootout, which ended when the suspect's gun jammed and Weinreis tackled Delacruz.

Delacruz is being held in the Yellowstone County Detention Facility on a $1 million bond.
