INDIANAPOLIS (AP) — Indianapolis police say two men have been found fatally shot inside a restaurant following what a co-owner says is an apparent robbery.

The Indianapolis Metropolitan Police Department says officers responded about 1 a.m. Wednesday to Jordan’s Fish and Chicken on the city’s east side and found the men with apparent gunshot wounds.

The men were pronounced dead at the scene. Names weren’t immediately released, but police say they were in their late 30s or early 40s and worked at the restaurant.

The deaths are under investigation. Police have surveillance video that they hope will help the investigation.

Ameer Saadeh, co-owner of the restaurant, tells The Indianapolis Star that the employees appear to have been attacked during a robbery. He says: “All we can do is pray for them. That’s all.”

INDIANAPOLIS (AP) — Indianapolis police have asked for the public’s help in finding two gunmen who they believe killed two restaurant workers during a robbery.

Investigators released surveillance video Wednesday showing two men wearing hooded sweatshirts with handguns entering Jordan’s Fish and Chicken on the city’s east side, jumping over the counter and running out a couple minutes later.

Maj. Richard Riddle says investigators believe the shootings happened just before 11 p.m. Tuesday. A relative called police about 1 a.m. Wednesday after finding the two slain men.

Restaurant co-owner Ameer Saadeh tells The Indianapolis Star that both men were employees. He says: “All we can do is pray for them. That’s all.”
