From Dan Tepfer, CT Post:
Deon Rodney died a hero.
When a masked gunman chased his intended victim into Rodney’s Park Avenue barbershop Saturday evening, the 31-year-old barber instinctively intervened.
“He not only wanted to protect the man seeking refuge in the barbershop but his customers as well,” said Police Capt. Roderick Porter. “It’s really tragic.”
Rodney’s death was the 22nd homicide in the city this year.
