Man Shot, Killed in Barbershop NR10137ah

Los Angeles: Los Angeles Police Department Rampart detectives are searching for a shooter who walked into a Los Angeles barbershop yesterday and killed a man who was getting his haircut.

The incident happened at 6:38 p.m. when a Latino man wearing a blue hoodie walked into the Alberto Barber Shop located at 730 South Alvarado Street, removed a handgun from his waistband and opened fire on 35-year-old Domingo Reyes.
