A gunman opened fire at a pho & teriyaki restaurant in Palms Sunday night, injuring one man.

The shooting happened just before 9:30 p.m. at Super Pho & Teriyaki at 10953 Venice Blvd. One man was hit in the hand and shoulder but is expected to survive, NBC Los Angeles reported. The gunman approached the victim, fired and then fled on foot, a spokeswoman for the LAPD told LAist. She said police do not believe the shooting was gang-related.

The shooting sent customers in the busy shop scurrying for the exits, and some even tried to flee through the kitchen, NBC's Gadi Schwartz reported.

LAPD Sgt. Carlton Jeter told the LA Weekly that suspect was dressed all in black.
