“urban terrorism”: 3 Shot Dead at Barbershop

According to a spokeswoman for the Wayne County Medical Examiner’s Office, the three men killed in the shooting are: Bryan Williams, 29; Joezell Williams, 61; and Kevin Perryman, 40. All died from multiple gunshot wounds, according to the office.

The shooting happened at Al’s Place Barber Shop at 5220 E. Seven Mile Road and might have been the result of an ongoing feud between the shooter and people at the gambling party, Craig said. / He called the shooting “urban terrorism.”

…The initial investigation, Craig said, revealed that 20 to 30 people were packed into a small room at the rear of the barbershop and were gambling.

He said a man pulled up in a vehicle and started firing at a truck with a high-powered rifle. At some point, the rear door of the shop opened and the shooter began firing inside of the business. Craig said nine people were shot inside of the location.

He said at least one person inside of the barbershop returned fire.

Investigators were searching for men driving two Chevrolet Impalas – one white, one black – involved in the shoot-out along Seven Mile Road between Mound and Ryan at about 6 p.m. Investigators said a shoot-out between the cars’ occupants in an alley behind the building spilled over into the barbershop.
