(WWJ) Police are asking for the public's help in tracking down two suspects and a person of interest connected to an overnight shooting at a coney island on Detroit's west side. 

It happened just before 2:30 a.m. Wednesday at Nicky D's Coney Island at 7 Mile and Greenfield.

A worker tells WWJ that a group came in and tried to order fried mushrooms, but the restaurant doesn't sell them.

The suspects left, but later returned without the license plate on their truck, came inside and started shooting.

A 40-year-old man -- a regular patron -- was shot in the mouth and was last listed in critical condition. 

"They were angry about the fried mushrooms," an employee explained to WWJ's Mike Campbell. "The guy (victim) didn't do nothing. He comes in here every day. He didn't do nothing to nobody. He doesn't say nothing ... I  mean he orders a cheeseburger and stays up here every night. They were mad because we didn't have fried mushrooms so they came back and just shot him ... They didn't say sh**. They just shot him."

Detroit police Wednesday night released surveillance video of two suspects attacking the victim. They are asking the public for any tips that could help identify the suspects. A woman that police are calling a person of interest was also with the suspects.

Authorities also released a photo of the black Ford F-150 the group used to flee the scene.

Anyone who has seen these individuals, knows of their whereabouts, or otherwise has information pertaining to the shooting is asked to call the Detroit Police Department’s Twelfth 12th Precinct at 313-920-9678.
