PANORAMA CITY (CBSLA) — Two men were shot and killed just outside a Denny's restaurant in Panorama City early Friday morning.

The shooting was reported at about 3:20 a.m. at the corner of Van Nuys Boulevard and Chase Street, according to Los Angeles police.

The two men, who were in their 20s, were sitting on a bus bench when a person with a gun walked up and opened fire. One of the men was declared dead at the scene, while the second died at a hospital.

Police say the shooting may have been gang-related.

The shooting was not connected with the diner. People who were inside the restaurant are not cooperating with detectives, police said.
