    A suspect wearing a mask stood at the front door of the Black Pearl Barber Shop and opened fire, police said.

    Two people were shot in Lauderhill Friday in the area of NW 55th Avenue and Oakland Park Boulevard when a suspect wearing a mask stood at the front door of a barber shop and opened fire, police said.

    "I heard about six gunshots outside and when I look I see some guys running and going crazy," witness Gary Elvie said of the shooting at the Black Pearl Barber Shop.

    It took place just after 5 p.m. Friday in a strip mall near Florida's Turnpike. One witness said that a customer was hit while sitting in a barber's chair.

    A second man who was outside was also shot. He was found at a nearby McDonald’s, Lauderhill Police said.

    They described the suspect, who is still at large, as a black male who was wearing dark clothing and a mask.

    The barber shop's glass door was shattered during the shooting. Workers installed plywood in its place Friday night.
