The Salt Lake City Police Department said Tuesday it was looking for two men in connection with the weekend shootings of five outside a restaurant.

Investigators believe the shooting is gang related. The incident began Saturday night at the Sky Bar, 161 W. 600 South, where two groups got into a verbal confrontation, said Salt Lake City police detective Dwayne Baird.

A few hours later, just after 4 a.m. Sunday, one of the groups was posing for pictures outside Denny's Restaurant near 250 West and 500 South when two men opened fire on the group from behind a fence, Baird said.

Five people suffered non-life threatening gunshot wounds to their legs.

The gunmen were last seen driving a 1990s gold Cadillac. Investigators believe one of the alleged gunmen might work at a local car dealership, Baird said.

Anyone with information on either gunman is asked to call police at 799-INFO.
