One man was killed and a woman was seriously injured Friday evening in a shooting in a beauty salon at 39th Street and Baltimore Avenue.
Police said two men entered the shop about 7:30 p.m. and apparently targeted the victims. The man was shot multiple times at close range and was dead at the scene. The woman also was struck and was taken to a hospital with what were initially described as life-threatening injuries.
The two men fled on foot and were last seen heading west. Police did not release a complete description of the men.
Police also did not identify the victims but several people who apparently knew them or were related to them wailed outside the yellow crime-scene tape as police closed off nearly two blocks of 39th Street.
Anyone with information is asked to call the Tips Hotline at 816-474-TIPS (474-8477).
