Venice Barber Shop Shooting Wounds Two
Two people were shot and wounded after a suspect walked into a Venice barber shop and opened fire this morning, police said.
It happened about 9:30 a.m. in the 1900 block of Lincoln Boulevard, LAPD Officer Richard French told the Weekly.
One victim was shot in the foot and ...
... was treated by paramedics at the scene, he said. Another turned up at a nearby hospital, apparently taken there by private car.
French said both had "non-life-threatening injuries."
Police were looking for a man in a hooded sweatshirt this morning, he said.

We found only one such hair business in that block, Pico Barbershops at 1920 Lincoln Boulevard. Here's its Yelp listing.
[Added]: Note that photos from the Yelp listing depict a pool table under a "beer" sign inside the shop.
That's a full-service destination if you ask us.
