Sgt. Mike Woody tells The Associated Press on Thursday morning the third person died at a hospital, but he didn’t immediately have additional details.

Shots erupted Wednesday evening outside Al’s Barber Shop on the city’s east side.

Police earlier said 10 people had been struck, including two who were inside the shop and died. Woody said Thursday morning the total shot was nine.

A news conference is planned for later Thursday.

Police Chief James Craig earlier said officers are “not sure if this was over a bad debt.” Police have been looking for at least two people believed to have carried out the shooting.
