Hearing for men convicted in barbershop shooting that injured 5-year-old boy

CLEVELAND– The men convicted in a robbery and shooting at a Cleveland barbershop appeared in court on Monday.

Ross Sumlin Jr. and Rayshaun Perkins were found guilty on all 17 counts in the case. The sentencing hearing was set for 10:30 a.m., but it was delayed when one of the defendants fired his attorney.

The sentencing is now scheduled for Dec. 4.

Police said the men tried to rob Prodigy Cuts at West 59th Street and Storer Avenue in October 2016. Employees fired their guns in self-defense, according to investigators.

A 5-year-old boy, who was getting his hair cut, was shot in the foot. A 26-year-old suffered a gunshot wound to the back.
