SHERMAN OAKS
—Los Angeles Police Department detectives are seeking five men for questioning in the shooting death of a cook at Hoagies and Wings on Friday, June 29.

Reports indicate Raul Lopez, 38, got into an argument with customers at the restaurant located at 14552 Ventura Blvd.  Detectives say someone called Lopez derogatory names and threw a chair at him.  Lopez proceeded to pick up the chair and attempted to get the five men in the group out of the restaurant.

After the men walked outside, Lopez put down the chair.  One of the men proceeded to pull out a gun and shoot Lopez in the chest.  He was transported to a local hospital where he died a short time after.

On Tuesday, July 3, Lopez's family was in tears at a news conference, pleading for justice for the death of their father Raul Lopez.
