Two men were eating dinner at a restaurant in Texas when they were shot and killed, according to a local news outlet.

Houston police officers were called to Tai Loi at about 11:05 p.m. Wednesday, Oct. 5, according to a news release from the police department.

The officers found two men unresponsive in a booth, each with several gunshot wounds, police said. They were pronounced dead in the west Houston restaurant.
