Believing some people ran inside the barbershop, SWAT surrounded the building and prepared to enter. That’s when the group exited the business with their hands behind their heads.
It’s unclear how the suspects got inside the building.
After arresting the eight people, officers used tear gas to drive out anyone who may have still been in the building.
Police waited for the gas to dissipate, so officers could do a more thorough search of the building, police said.
Quigley said officers were unable to reach the business owner to get inside initially and instead had to get a warrant.
