UPPER DARBY, Pa. (KYW Newsradio) — Police are looking for two gunmen who opened fire in an Upper Darby Chinese restaurant last week Friday. The shooting left two people injured, and one of the victims is now paralyzed. 

Upper Darby Police Superintendent Michael Chitwood describes the shooting as "sadistic, heinous, cold-blooded."

"All the bad guys got guns," Chitwood said. "I mean, it's amazing. You go in to buy Chinese food and everybody's got a gun."

Police say close to midnight Friday at the Good Luck Chinese restaurant on Garrett Road, 27-year-old Oscar Seth-Murray went in, ordered food and walked out. Moments later, he returned and approached a 23-year-old man who had cash on him. Police say Seth-Murray grabbed him, pulled him toward the door, and shot him in the neck on their way out the door. That same bullet, police say, hit a 16-year-old bystander in the thigh. 

After all that, police say 26-year-old Timothy Price Jr., a friend of the victim, rushed in and fired a couple of shots in Seth-Murray's direction. Those shots didn't hit anyone else. Police say there were about 15 people inside at the time. 

As the cops search for the two suspects, the 16-year-old victim has been treated and released. But police say the other victim is paralyzed and in critical conditon.
