    Please post if there are any updates, you’ve got a solid contingent of Barracks Row area readers. This is awful and I hope that the kid’s able to fully recover.

    sad that if this were deemed to be “terrorism,” this would make national headlines. but, alas, this is just normal everyday city gun violence. sad.

    This is so beyond unacceptable. Middle of a Friday afternoon?! I am so glad the man and toddler are alive.

    Wow, three masked men opening fire in a barbershop. That sounds like some kind of gang revenge or a mob hit or something. Hopefully the adult victim and/or other witnesses cooperate and they catch these terrorists
