RIVIERA BEACH, FL (WFLX) - A family is still stunned after two men were shot outside of a Riviera Beach barber shop by an armed robber.
One of the men, 59-year-old Dudley Watson, did not survive the night. His grieving brother says it was a matter of being in the wrong place at the wrong time. "I got the call that he didn't make it, and that was like my whole life came apart."
A family friend, 34-year-old Sammie Lanier, Jr., was also shot. He's at St. Mary's Hospital. Doctors expect him to survive.
Riviera Beach Police received a call just after 9 p.m. from a concerned neighbor after hearing gunshots. Family members say the suspects demanded money, and when the men said they didn't have any, they were sprayed with bullets.
For now, police are not confirming that story, but they are hoping for tips.
