Man Tied to Murders at Detroit Barber Shop, Gambling Den Charged With Assault

A man linked to the shooting deaths of three individuals at a Detroit barbershop that doubled as an illegal gambling den has been charged with assault.

A federal court jury on Monday convicted Larry Walker II of assaulting a federal law enforcement officer for trying to ram an unmarked police car in the hours following the November incident.

Walker faces up to 20 years prison time and will be sentenced July 8.  He is not charged with the killing the three individuals but is considered a “person of interest” in the slayings.  Six others were also shot but survived the incident at Al’s Barbershop in the 5200 block of 7 Mile Road on the city’s northeast side.
