A shooting outside of a barbershop on Detroit's east side has left three people dead and five others wounded. WDIV reports that the shooting took place on Seven Mile Road, adding that the shooter fired shots into a barbershop in the area, then waited for people to exit before firing more.

"Suspects engaged a couple of victims. Several shots were fired. It's unknown if some of the victims fired back. Right now the information that we have is that nine people have been shot," Detroit Police Chief James Craig said, adding that "[there are] three confirmed, pronounced (dead) at the scene, one we're not sure of."

One person was reportedly taken to St. John's Hospital by emergency responders, and Craig said that all surviving victims have been taken to other hospitals in the area. We will continue to update information as it becomes available.
