August 29, 2021

A Melbourne barbershop owner shot and wounded a masked gunman who entered the shop Saturday afternoon and pointed a firearm at several people, police said Sunday.

The shooting occurred about 3:25 p.m. Saturday at New York Hair Barber Shop, which is located in a small strip mall on Florida Avenue, just west of Babcock Street, said Melbourne Police Lt. Ryan Schorer.

The gunman, whom police identified as Palm Bay resident Marlon Mascoe, 24, was shot in the hip. He was disarmed and apprehended at the scene by patrons and employees, and is being treated at Holmes Regional Medical Center in Melbourne, Schorer said.

"The investigation revealed that it wasn't related to a robbery. It was actually related to a prior haircut transaction he was unhappy with, or an interaction inside the business," Schorer said.

Mascoe has been charged with aggravated assault with a firearm.
