HOUSTON – A search is underway for suspects accused of shooting and killing two men while they were at a restaurant in southwest Houston Wednesday, officers with the Houston Police Department said.

HPD units responded to reports of a shooting inside a restaurant located at 12320 Bellaire Blvd. in Alief around 11 p.m.

Officers said when they arrived at the scene, they located two men, one 63 years old and the other between 30-40 years of age, with multiple gunshot wounds sitting at a booth. They were pronounced dead at the scene by emergency officials with the Houston Fire Department, HPD said.

According to investigators, possibly one to three male suspects walked into the business and fired shots at the men. The suspect(s), described by police only as Asian males, then walked out of the restaurant and fled in an unknown vehicle, HPD said.
