Person killed after shooting inside Dorchester barbershop

DORCHESTER (WHDH) — A person shot inside a Dorchester barbershop Tuesday morning has died.

The shooting happened just before 11 a.m. at the Creole International Barbershop on Stoughton Street.

DJonny Fernandes, the barbershop’s owner, said three of his employees were working on customers when a man walked in wearing a mask and shot one of the men in the chairs.

Employees said the suspect shot the customer three or four times. Just a few chairs away was a 12-year-old boy. He was not injured but Fernandes said his mother brought him to the hospital anyway because he was in shock.

Fernandes said his shop has been here for nine years and he has never had anything like this happen before. The victim was a man in his early 20s and Fernandes said he was a regular customer.
