Miami barbershop owner stabbed in stomach by disgruntled client, family says

One person was stabbed and another was shot Thursday morning at a South Florida barbershop, authorities said.

The incident was reported shortly before 11 a.m. at a barbershop at 2060 NW 22nd Ave.

Miami Fire Rescue officials said two people were taken to Jackson Memorial Hospital's Ryder Trauma Center.

According to loved ones, the owner of the barbershop, Serban Beriguete, was stabbed in the stomach by a disgruntled client while he was washing his hands at the back of the business.

Beriguete's wife and daughter told Local 10 News that Beriguete pulled out his gun in self-defense and shot the other man.

Beriguete's daughter said her father had a gun at the business because he "wanted to make sure everyone around him, including himself, were safe."

The victim's daughter and wife said they were not aware of any ongoing issues between Beriguete and anyone at the barbershop.

The barbershop has been open for about 10 years and the father of three has been a barber for about 20 years, loved ones said.

Beriguete's family said he is in serious but stable condition at the hospital, and doctors are doing tests and scans to make sure that no internal organs were damaged. 

The identity of the man who was shot and his condition were not immediately released.
