WEST ENGLEWOOD — A shooting in a West Englewood barbershop left a man dead and two others wounded Friday afternoon.

The shooting occurred around 2 p.m. Friday in Suitable Barber and Beauty Salon, 1957 W. 59th St., said Officer Thomas Sweeney, a Chicago police spokesman.

Officers found three people wounded inside the shop, Sweeney said. A 22-year-old man was in critical condition, while a 44-year-old was in serious condition and a 31-year-old man was in stable condition.

The 22-year-old was shot in his chest and was initally taken to Advocate Christ Medical Center in Oak Lawn, which is where he was later pronounced dead, police said. He was identified as Deandre Ellis of the 1900 block of West 59th Street, according to the Cook County Medical Examiner's Office.

The 44-year-old was also shot in his chest and taken to Stroger Hospital in the Illinois Medical District. The 31-year-old was shot in his right hand and taken to Holy Cross Hospital in Chicago Lawn.

The men had gang ties, said Officer Bari Lennon, a police spokeswoman.

A neighbor who lives on the street said the barbershop requires customers to be buzzed in.

A man who works nearby said he was suprised by the shooting.

"This is pretty much a quiet corner," said Edward Dumas, 46.

He said he normally sees mainly women inside the shop.
