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.
