TOLLESON, AZ (3TV/CBS 5) - What started with a haircut, ended in triple-shooting in Wednesday afternoon. 

It happened inside Marcelo's AZ Barbershop at 83rd Avenue and Van Buren Street, which also happens to be across the street from the Tolleson Police Department.

Police say a teenage boy got into an argument and pulled out a handgun and started shooting.

When the 911 call came in, detectives took the fastest route and started running over.

"When they kicked out the address we all know where it is because it's right across the street from our station so that's why everyone was able to get here so quick," said Officer Simon Lopes with the Tolleson Police Dept.

Inside the barber shop, police found three victims. 

Two men who were shot in the upper torso and were taken to the hospital. One needed emergency surgery. 

A third victim was grazed and was treated at the scene.

Police say the teenager had the gun with him when he was arrested. Because the suspect is a juvenile, his name and exact age is not being released. 

The victims have not yet been identified.

An investigation is underway.
