Two separate Richmond shootings Thursday night claimed the lives of three men, police said.

The first shooting was reported at 9:14 p.m. and occurred in Sahib Indian Restaurant, located at 12221 San Pablo Ave., Richmond police Sgt. Lori Curran said.

Two male suspects apparently entered the restaurant and began shooting, according to Curran. Arriving officers found the victims, both employees of the restaurant, suffering from life threatening injuries, Curran said.

One victim was pronounced dead at the scene and the second victim was airlifted to an area hospital where he later died, according to Curran.

Curran said there were no customers in the restaurant at the time of the shooting.

At 9:49 p.m., police responded to reports of a man down in the 300 block of South 38th Street. Officers found a male victim suffering a gunshot wound to his head, Curran said. The victim was pronounced dead at the scene.

Both shootings are under investigation and no arrests have been made.
