SAN DIEGO (CNS) - The 32-year-old owner of an Oak Park barber shop was shot and killed at his workplace Friday, and his assailant was at large.
The gunfire erupted at the business at 54th and Redwood streets shortly before 11:30 a.m., according to San Diego police.
Lt. Brent Williams of the San Diego Police Department's Homicide Unit said a male suspect entered the business, approached the victim and fired several rounds.
The victim suffered multiple gunshot wounds and died at the scene, he said.
A relative identified him to reporters as Lamar Canady, a father of four and owner of the shop.
Officers fanned out through the area in search of the unidentified shooter. No arrests had been announced by early evening.
The suspect was described as black with a medium complexion and wearing a dark shirt and shorts, baseball cap and white shoes.
A number of distraught people crowded the area following the shooting, trying to get past police crime-scene tape and yelling at news crews. Television broadcasts showed several men being cuffed and led away.
