Restaurant owners shot to death in M Streets

Husband-and-wife restaurant owners Yayehyirad Lemma and Yenenesh Desta, who owned Desta at Greenville and Markville, were shot to death at their home on Marquita near Lower Greenville during a rainstorm around midnight Wednesday.

Police say their killer followed them and shot them dead on the front porch of their home. Their 18-month-old son and Lemma’s mother were inside the home at the time. Police have no suspects in the case so far, and surveillance video from San Francisco Rose is unclear because of the rain, according to the Dallas Morning News.
