VENTURA, Calif. (KABC) -- One man was killed and another hospitalized following a double shooting outside a restaurant in Ventura early morning Sunday.

The shooting happened around 1:20 a.m. in the parking lot of Golden China Restaurant in the 700 block of Seaward Avenue.

A California Highway Patrol officer who was in the area heard the gunshots and found a 27-year-old man suffering from wounds to his upper body at the driveway to the restaurant. He died at the scene.

Soon after, a second gunshot victim, a 30-year-old man, arrived at Community Memorial Hospital with a single gunshot wound to the upper body.

He is expected to survive.
