HOUSTON – Houston police released several surveillance photos of two suspects wanted in a fatal shooting that occurred outside a southwest Houston restaurant.

The shooting was reported at approximately 12:07 a.m. outside a restaurant located at 6001 Bissonnet St.

A preliminary investigation determined two individuals were drinking at the restaurant bar just after midnight. At some point, officials said one of the individuals went out to his car when he received some sort of message on his phone. Investigators said the man went back into the bar, got his partner and ushered him into the vehicle.

Shortly after the men got into the vehicle, two suspects rushed behind them with semiautomatic pistols and began shooting into the vehicle, according to investigators. Both the victims exited the car and attempted to run away, investigators said. The suspects continued firing at the pair as they ran, fatally shooting one of the men, investigators said.

The suspects then fled the scene.

The suspects are described only as two Hispanic males in their 20s. Surveillance photos of both suspects have been released.
