Caught on camera: Video shows shooting at Mount Hope barber shop

Posted: Updated:
MOUNT HOPE -

Shocking new video has surfaced of a shooting at a barber shop in Mount Hope that occurred in May.

Police say a party inside a barber shop located on Jerome Avenue came to a halt after two men weren’t allowed in and fired shots in retaliation.

The video shows the suspects shouting seemingly toward Fashion Hair Unisex barber shop where the party was taking place.

Police say it’s not clear just what the suspects were saying in the video before the man seen in red sneakers passes a gun to the suspect in a gray sweatshirt, which he then shoots at the barber shop, hitting a 26-year-old man in the arm.

The two men took turns shooting into the store before they took off on the yellow dirt bike seen in the video, with the number “63” on the front.

One of the barbers spoke to News 12, saying the incident is no reflection on the barber shop.

The 26-year-old man who was hurt was treated and released from the hospital.

The police are still on the hunt for three men – the two who shot into the barber shop, and the one who drove away with them.
