19 News is working to get more details on the deadly shooting that happened outside the First Class Barber Shop.

Thirty-year-old Antonio Parra was shot multiple times and died on the street at West 51st and Clark.

There is a small memorial, flowers and a lit candle plus a personal note that read, “Antonio we didn’t know you but we just want to say how sad it is about what happened to you. Fly high with the angels and rest easy. Sincerely, customers from Caruso’s Bar.”

That bar sits directly across the street from the murder scene.

Jose Gonzales lives just down the street from the scene.

“That’s crazy. I live here for four years now. Every two weeks... kill somebody here, that gas station and everywhere,” Jose Gonzales told 19 News.

Two males with hoodies on approached Antonio Parra and opened fire. He was hit multiple times. The suspects ran away. One was arrested near the scene.

Police showed up at Mayor Jackson’s house on East 38th Street to handcuff and question a juvenile seemingly in connection with the deadly shooting.

He was later released to his parents. A blue truck, placed at the scene of the shooting, was also there. It was towed away.

“No, it’s nothing new. Pretty sad though? Yeah.That’s crazy. Got a lot of kids at that time getting out of school and it’s too dangerous for the kids,” Parra said.
