Bich Xuan Dang, 49, has been charged with capital murder in the 482nd State District Court. The victims in the shooting were identified as Hahn Minh Nguyen, 63, and Long Nguyen, 51.

Police said they responded to reports of a shooting at a restaurant located at 12320 Bellaire Blvd. on Oct. 5 and found two unresponsive men in a dining booth with multiple gunshot wounds.

Officers said a preliminary investigation determined a white Toyota Camry with Texas license plate number LCS3779 was seen parking near the restaurant. The vehicle was determined to be stolen, HPD said. According to investigators, three suspects armed with handguns exited the vehicle and entered the restaurant. A short time later, police said the suspects ran back to the vehicle and fled the scene.

Further investigation identified Dang as the shooter in this case and he was subsequently charged for his role, according to investigators. Police said two other suspects, described by police only as Asian males, also remain at large.
