SALINAS, Calif. — Two people were killed and five others wounded on Monday when a gunman opened fire into a crowd outside a California taco restaurant in a suspected gang-related shooting. It was the most recent attack in a spate of violence that police say they’re trying to quell.

The 1:30 a.m. shooting happened after a fight inside the restaurant spilled outside, police said. No arrests have been made.

Arriving officers found a 22-year-old man dead from gunshot wounds. A 28-year-old man who also was shot several times was taken to a hospital, where he was pronounced dead.

Salinas Police Department Cmdr. Dave Shaw said the shooting happened after two different groups in the restaurant started brawling. The conflict moved out into the parking lot, where it grew into “a pretty decent-sized fight,” said Shaw.

Then a suspect pulled a handgun and began firing into the crowd, Shaw said. By the time he was done, the suspect had shot seven people. Besides the two killed, another victim, a 25-year-old man, was critically wounded, Shaw said.
