Gunmen kill 2 men in shop owned by NBA's Mourning

MIAMI (AP) — Three or four hooded gunmen walked into a barbershop co-owned by pro basketball star Alonzo Mourning and killed two men who had just gotten haircuts, police said.

The victims were both in their early 20s, officers said.

"Both were shot in the head. It seems like a message," police Lt. Lorenzo Whitehead said. No one else was injured in the shooting Saturday, including a 1-year-old child who was with one of the victims.

The Cutz barbershop is owned by Mourning, a former Miami Heat star now with the New Jersey Nets, and barber Peter Bethel.
