Authorities in Anoka County are still trying to find out what led to a weekend shooting that left one dead and seven injured.

So far, no one is in custody in connection with the shooting at Dala Thai Restaurant and Banquet Hall.  

Authorities have identified the man who was shot to death.  

19-year-old Chai Yang of Saint Paul died of gunshot wounds, while the others suffered non-life-threatening injuries.  

Their ages are listed between 19 and 38.  

An Anoka County sheriff's commander says gunfire started after midnight Sunday morning following a fight between two groups of people in the restaurant's parking lot.  

This is the first reported homicide in Spring Lake Park since 1997, and police say they had never before been called to Dala Thai, which opened earlier this year.
