Details about how a restaurant shooting that left four dead and two injured went down started to become more clear Monday, but police were still left with varying reports, leaving a murky picture on some ends.

What's clear is that around 4 p.m., a suspects or suspects walked in and approached the table where the six victims, who were at a funeral earlier in the day, were eating, according to the LA Times. But when it comes how many suspects, detectives still cannot rely on witness accounts and believe there may be more witnesses who fled the scene before police arrived.

They hope an analysis of shell casings will help reveal how many shooters there were. Security footage didn't show the inside of the restaurant. Anonymous sources to the Times are now saying the incident could be tied to "Armenian or Eurosian organized crime."
