A city man was fatally shot about 2:30 a.m. yesterday inside Kristyles Barber Shop in the 400 block of W. Saratoga St., said police spokesman Sgt. Kevin Daniels.

Daniels said Bernard Stepney, 19, of the 5500 block of Cedonia Ave. and his assailant had gotten into an altercation at another location minutes before the shooting.

After Stepney went to the barbershop, a man shot him several times, then fled, running east on Saratoga Street. No one else was injured in the incident.
