• Police: Barbershop owner shot attacker in self-defense

    Updated:
    PHILADELPHIA (AP) - Philadelphia police say a barbershop owner shot and wounded a man who he says was attacking him.

    Police say the owner was acting in self-defense when he shot the 26-year-old man at a barbershop Monday morning. WCAU-TV reports the shooting left the alleged attacker in stable condition with gunshot wounds to the stomach and groin.

    The sign outside the shop advertises a tax service, but neighborhood residents say a barbershop operates inside the building.

    Police are continuing the investigation.
