BOSTON (AP) — Boston police say they have identified a 20-year-old man who was gunned down in a city barber shop.

The Boston Globe reported (http://bo.st/VgQAxA ) Sunday that police say Stephan Pires was shot in the head inside the Universal Barber Shop and Beauty Salon in the city's Dorchester neighborhood just after 7 p.m. Thursday.

A woman in her 70s getting her hair styled was grazed by a bullet on the arm. Police believe that Pires was targeted but the woman was an innocent bystander.

The death was the city's 40th homicide of the year.
