On Saturday, a gunman killed two Baltimore barbers and injured another in a spree of shootings.

One of the shootings happened at The Bladi Style barber shop on O’Donnell Street.

Police Commissioner Michael Harrison said the suspect walked into the barber shop, pulled out a handgun and fired it at one of the barbers.

An off-duty sergeant who was getting a haircut from another barber fatally shot the gunman.

Troy Staton, a shooting survivor and founder of More Than A Shop, a program that provides a variety of services, including mental health training and career assistance joins Two Way Talk to discuss the power of uniting communities.
