Two Men Shot During Robbery at Ocala Barbershop
Ocala Police are investigating a shooting at a barbershop that put two men in the hospital late Saturday evening.
Two black males dressed in all black clothing and armed with handguns entered the Alpha Barbershop located at 1524 North Magnolia Avenue in Ocala last night demanding money and cell phones from the two men in the store.
The victims surrendered their money and cell phones and were told to get on the floor, and they complied.
According to police, the two men were then shot for no reason: one was shot in the back and one was shot in the arm and chest.
At this point in time, both men are still alive. Their names and conditions have not been released.
Police are searching for the armed robbers. Witnesses say both are around 20-years-old, about 5 feet 8 inches tall and have short hair cuts. One of the robbers was wearing a silver-toned necklace with circular diamonds on it.
If you have any information about this incident, please call the Ocala Police Department at 352-369-7000 or the Marion County Crime Stoppers at 352-368-STOP.
