Police search for 2 accused of deadly triple shooting outside Brookhaven restaurant

Police have obtained arrest warrants for two men accused of shooting three people, killing one, outside a DeKalb County restaurant.

Humberto Lorenzo Barcenas, 21, of Brookhaven, and Enrique Segura Diaz, 19, of Atlanta, are each charged with felony murder, five counts of aggravated assault and possession of a firearm during the commission of a felony, Brookhaven police said Friday in a news release.

The two allegedly got into a dispute with other customers at the Acapulco Restaurant and Bar on Buford Highway on Sunday, the release said. They’re accused of then running to Diaz’s vehicle, where Barcenas grabbed a firearm.

Police said Diaz drove as Barcenas fired into an occupied taxi cab before turning back and shooting across the crowded parking lot.
