Woman killed in double shooting at College Park Mexican restaurant

Police are investigating a deadly double shooting at a Mexican restaurant on Old National Highway in College Park.

Officers with the College Park Police Department say the shooting happened shortly before 12:45 a.m. at the Cozumel Cantina on the 5000 block of Old National Highway.

At the scene, officers found a 25-year-old man who had been shot in the arm and a 47-year-old woman with multiple gunshot wounds.

Medics rushed the man to a local hospital for treatment. His condition at this time is unknown.

Despite lifesaving efforts, the woman died from her injuries at the scene.

Investigators say they believe the shooting started during a fight at the restaurant. A Cozumel Cantina employee told FOX 5 that a family was celebrating a birthday when two people went outside. A security guard would not let them back in and that's when a man with a gun allegedly started shooting.

The employee says the security guard returned fire. During the gunfire, both victims were shot.

Authorities have not released the identity of either of the victims at this time.
