An Ohio man suspected of fatally shooting three people and injuring three others at a Cleveland barbershop was arrested Friday, the Associated Press reports. Acting on a tip, police arrested Douglas Shine Jr. without incident after surrounding his home, Warrensville Heights Police Chief Wesley Haynes tells AP.

“Everybody is relieved that this individual is off the street,” Haynes said, according to AP. “He was dangerous, violent, unpredictable. I think the level of relief is high.”


Shine is accused of opening fire in Chalk Linez barbershop in suburban Cleveland on the evening of Feb. 5, killing owner William Gonzalez and his friends Walter Lee Barfield and Brandon White, the news outlet writes. Barfield worked for Gonzalez at the barbershop, and White was there to get a haircut and to play video games, the report says. Three other people were shot but are recovering, the report says. Haynes said Shine had a long criminal history, including robbery and assault charges, AP says.

Officials would not comment on a possible motive, AP writes, saying that an investigation was ongoing. According to AP, Shine, who was being held in jail in Cuyahoga County, could not be reached for comment and did not have an attorney.
