A man was shot multiple times while sitting in a barber’s chair in Wilkinsburg this afternoon after two men barged into the shop, Allegheny County Police said.
The victim shot back at his attackers, county police Lt. Andrew Schurman said, and is in critical condition.
The two men fled Meachez Y2 Kutz, on the corner of Wood Street and Wallace Avenue, on foot and left the area in a maroon or dark red minivan headed toward Homewood, Lt. Schurman said. Police responded at 2:25 p.m.
Both are described as young black men wearing dark clothing. One wore a ball cap, he said.
