The LAPD is looking for the two men, who fled in a dark car after the shooting Friday night. [Updated at 8:26 a.m.: LAPD sources said there has been some confusion about exactly how the shooting occurred and that the department would provide a clearer narrative later this morning.]

The shooting took place at the Pink Pepper, a Thai restaurant in the 1600 block of North La Brea Avenue, about 10:15 p.m., said Norma Eisenman, a spokeswoman for the Los Angeles Police Department.

TV footage showed that the bullet shattered the glass enclosure of the eatery's outdoor patio.
There was no known motive for the shooting.
