Detroit police say gunfire broke out at a barbershop known for gambling activity, leaving at least two people dead.
Police spokeswoman Kelly Miner says the shootings happened Wednesday evening at Al's Barber Shop. She earlier gave the name as Rockies but now says that's the name of a different shop in the area.
Miner says nine men were shot and two of them are confirmed dead.
She says people in two cars exchanged gunfire with each other, then shot into the barbershop. She says the dead men were inside the shop.
The barbershop is in a strip mall along a major road on Detroit's east side.
Police Chief James Craig says the barbershop is a known gambling site but doesn't know if the shooting was gambling-related.
