Shots erupted late Wednesday outside Al’s Barber Shop on the city’s east side.

The barbershop is known for gambling but it’s not clear whether that had anything to do with the gunfire, police say.

Police earlier said 10 people had been struck, including two who were inside the shop and died. Woody said Thursday morning the total shot was nine.

A news conference is planned for later Thursday.

Police Chief James Craig earlier said officers are ‘‘not sure if this was over a bad debt.’’ Police have been looking for at least two people believed to have carried out the shooting.
