BOSTON—Two Boston men convicted of killing two people during a shootout at a city restaurant, including a chef who was an unintended victim, face sentencing this week.

Emmanuel Pina and Sandro Tavares are scheduled to be sentenced Tuesday in Suffolk Superior Court. Both face a mandatory sentence of life in prison without the possibility of parole.

The men were convicted last Thursday of two counts of murder for their roles in the August 2009 shooting outside Ka'Carlos Bar and Grill in Dorchester.

The shooting stemmed from a confrontation earlier inside.

Prosecutors say outside, Pina shot at Jovany Eason, but the bullet missed and went through the restaurant's window. It struck 47-year-old chef Manuel Monteiro in the chest, killing him.

Authorities say Pina kept firing at Eason, striking him several times.
