BOSTON (AP) - Police say a man who had taken his 4-year-old son to get a haircut was gunned down outside a Boston barbershop.

The shooting was reported just after 12 p.m. Tuesday in Mattapan. Police say the victim, identified as 31-year-old Marcus Hall of Dorchester, had just arrived at the business with his son when he was approached by an unknown person.

Police say Hall was shot several times after he and the other person left the barbershop. They say Hall was dead when officers arrived at the scene. Barbershop patrons say Hall’s son was inside the shop when the shooting occurred.

Police declared the shooting an active homicide investigation and were searching the neighborhood for a suspect. Authorities say they believe the victim and the suspect knew each other.
