Detroit — A 40-year-old man was shot multiple times early Wednesday morning inside a coney shop on Detroit's west side, police said.

The shooting took place about 2:20 a.m. at the Nicky D's Coney Island on the 15400 block of West Seven Mile near Greenfield.

The victim was waiting for his food when two men entered and started to place an order "then began arguing with the patrons inside, resulting in the suspects assaulting the victim and one of them shooting him," police said in a statement.

The men entered the restaurant and left it with a woman. All three fled in a black Ford F-150 with a cab and a temporary sticker.

The suspects are believed to have fled in a black Ford 150.

Medics transported the victim to a hospital, where he was listed in critical condition.

Authorities have released surveillance images of the suspects. One was last seen wearing a light colored hat, white short-sleeved shirt, tan pants, white shoes, armed with a handgun.

The other suspect was last seen wearing a dark hat, white short-sleeved shirt, blue jeans, dark shoes, armed with a baton.

Both suspects were caught on camera in the business.

Investigators are also seeking tips to find the woman with them, who they described as a person of interest.

The suspects left with a woman who was last seen wearing all black.

Anyone who knows their whereabouts is asked to call the Detroit Police Department’s 12th Precinct at (313) 920-9679.
