MOUNT HOPE -

A man walked himself to the hospital after a party inside a Mount Hope barbershop turned violent early Thursday morning.

Police say shots were fired when a man was denied entry to the barbershop on Jerome Avenue and 176th Street just before 6 a.m.

They say the victim, a 26-year-old man, walked himself to Bronx Lebanon Hospital with a gunshot wound to his arm.

Investigators canvassed the area for surveillance videos from nearby stores. Police say they found three bullet casings steps away from the shop.

No arrests have yet been made as police search for the gunman.
