Chandler police say a male victim was shot inside a Serrano's Mexican Food restaurant near Arizona Avenue and Frye Road Saturday evening.

Seth Tyler of the Chandler Police Department said the incident occurred around 6 p.m. and the restaurant was full of people.

The shooting suspect approached the victim's table while he was sitting with friends and asked, "Hey do I know you?"

A friend of the victim stood up and fight ensued with the suspect, spilling into the aisles and into the middle of the restaurant, according to Tyler.

The suspect then pulled a gun and shot the victim several times before leaving the restaurant and driving away.

The victim has been transported to a local hospital with unknown injuries.

The shooting suspect has not been taken into custody and their location is unknown at this time.
