Ohio city offers reward for suspect in barbershop slayings


WARRENSVILLE HEIGHTS, Ohio (AP) — A Cleveland suburb is offering a $5,000 reward for information about a man suspected of killing three people and wounding three others in a shooting at a barbershop last week.

Officials in Warrensville Heights on Wednesday identified 20-year-old Douglas Shine Jr. of Cleveland as a suspect. An aggravated murder warrant has been issued for his arrest.

Police say Shine is likely in the Cleveland area and is very dangerous. Police say they’ve received tips identifying Shine as the shooter.

William Gonzalez, Brandon White and Walter Lee Barfield were killed in the shooting. Two men and a woman who were wounded are recovering.

Police say they’re investigating if the shooting was gang-related. Mayor Brad Sellers said Wednesday only one person in the shop was believed to be Shine’s target that night.
