Man wounded in Belair-Parkside barbershop shooting

A 39-year-old man was wounded after a gunman opened fire in a Northeast Baltimore barbershop early Friday, police said.

Officers responding to a report of a shooting in the 4300 block of Belair Rd. around 12:30 a.m. found the victim in a rear bathroom suffering from a gunshot wound to his left leg, a police spokesman said. Witnesses told police that a man in a grey hooded sweatshirt ran inside the Cutz 4 Kingz Barbershop and fired at least once.

It was unclear if the victim was an employee or a customer — a man who answered the phone at the barbershop hung up on a reporter — but police said he was expected to survive his injuries. A motive wasn't immediately known but district detectives were investigating.
