PORTSMOUTH, Ohio — Police are searching for the suspect involved in a double homicide in Portsmouth.
In the early morning hours of Sunday, officers responded to a call of shots fired in the area of Frank N Steins Bar at 707 Chillicothe Street.
Upon arrival, reports say, officers located two deceased Hispanic males, both suffering from gunshot wounds.
The victims were identified as Xavier Luna and Abraham Velasco. The two men were employees at the Toro Loco Authentic Mexican Restaurant, where donations are being accepted.
