A 13-year veteran of the New Orleans Police Department was shot and killed Saturday while off duty in a Houston restaurant.
Detective Everett Briscoe was shot to death around 5:17 p.m. at the Grotto Ristorante near Houston’s Galleria area.
Briscoe was the father of two children, sources told Fox 8.
According to Houston police, the officer sources identified as Briscoe and another man were dining with a group on an outdoor patio when two hooded gunmen approached and demanded their belongings. Though witnesses told Houston police that the victims complied, one of the gunmen fired shots that killed one victim and left another man hospitalized in critical condition.
The suspects are at large.
