Police were investigating on Monday the fatal stabbing and shooting of two men outside a sports bar in Downey.

Officers responded about 2 a.m. Sunday to a fight and stabbing reported in the parking lot of George’s Restaurant and Bar in the 7800 block of Florence Avenue, Downey police Sgt. Jerry Massie said.

When officers arrived, they discovered two men lying in the street, both suffering from stab and gunshot wounds, Massie said. They were pronounced dead at a hospital.

The suspects, described only as men, were last seen driving west on Florence in unidentified vehicles. It was not clear how many suspects were involved nor how the fight began.

Employees said the victims had gone to Tacos Mexico, across the street from George's, to get food when, for some reason, they got into an altercation with the suspects, KTLA-TV reported.

“When officers arrived, they found two males in their early 30s suffering from both stab and gunshot wounds,” Downey police Lt. Mark McDaniel told the TV station.
