“Detectives have learned the victim and suspect were in the restaurant and engaged in some sort of argument when the suspect produced a gun and shot the victim,” Walker said. “The suspect was seen leaving the area in a black sports utility vehicle.”

Walker said the victim was transported to a local hospital, where he was pronounced dead. Homicide detectives were investigating the shooting this morning, he said.
