SAN GABRIEL, Calif. (AP) – Police on Friday sought two gunmen who opened fire inside a crowded coffee shop, killing one man and wounding six others, several critically, in a suspected gang-related revenge attack.

Sheriff Lee Baca said it appeared the masked gunmen were targeting a specific person.

“The manner in which it was done suggests it was a payback situation or a revenge situation,” Baca said. “They had a specific person they were trying to shoot.”

The shop was crowded with at least 40 people when the attack occurred late Thursday, but deputies were having a hard time finding witnesses.

The shop’s surveillance cameras were not working properly and did not record the attack, San Gabriel police Sgt. Rene Hernandez said.
