VANCOUVER, British Columbia (Reuters) - Two people were killed and six people wounded in an early-morning shooting in a Vancouver restaurant on Thursday, police said.

Vancouver police were searching for two men who walked into the Fortune Happiness Restaurant in an east side neighborhood in this Canadian Pacific Coast city at about 4:30 a.m.. The attack was believed to be targeted.

“(Officers) arrived to a chaotic scene at the restaurant with tables and chairs overturned, customers shot, broken glass and frantic witnesses,” police said in a statement.

Police said they were talking to several witnesses. One of the wounded victims was reported to be in critical condition.
