This morning police are searching for several suspects in the fatal shooting last night outside the Jose Beauty Salon and Barber Shop at 110 Forsyth Street.   An NYPD spokesperson says officers were called to the scene, at Forsyth and Broome streets, at 9:30 p.m.  The victim had already been transported to Bellevue Hospital, where he was pronounced dead from a gunshot wound to the chest.

Witnesses said an argument began in the barber shop and continued on the street. The victim was 32 years old. Police are withholding his identity until family members are notified.  An employee at the Don Juan Bodega, located in the same building, said he heard the shots and then saw several young people fleeing in every direction, but he didn’t get more than a glimpse at any of them.

No description of the suspects from police yet; we’ll update when there are more details.

 UPDATE 10/7/2012 10:17 p.m. Police have identified the victim as 29-year old Charles Fernandez of Mott Street.
