AKRON, Ohio (AP) - Police are searching for a man who was about to get his hair cut when he pulled a gun and shot three people following an argument at an Akron barbershop.

Lt. Rick Edwards says the incident began when a 20-year-old man came into RP Blade Academy around 11:00 a.m. Thursday and began yelling at a customer seated in the barber’s chair.

The suspect pulled out a firearm and opened fire, hitting the 20-year-old along with a 49-year-old Tallmadge man and a 17-year-old boy. Police say the gunman fled the barbershop on foot with the barber’s cape still attached.

Police have described the suspect as a 20- to 30-year-old man about 5 feet, 6 inches tall with an Afro hairstyle.

The three victims were in stable condition late Thursday afternoon.
