Police said the three men, armed with handguns and an axe, entered Sam’s Emporium, 468 E. Exchange, about 8 p.m.

Two of the men used the axe to smash glass jewelry cases and then grabbed miscellaneous jewelry.

During the robbery, a 50 year-old jeweler emerged from the store’s back room and one of the robbers fired shot toward him as the group fled.

The whole thing happened in less than 20 seconds.

Police: Time-consuming haircut prompts Cleveland woman to pull gun

CLEVELAND: Police in Cleveland are trying to identify a woman they say pulled a gun on a barber because he was taking too long to cut her 7-year-old son’s hair.

Cleveland.com says a police report says the woman threatened the barber at a barber school April 14.

Police say the woman complained several times before pulling a handgun from her purse and pointing it at the barber, telling him, “I got two clips. I’ll pop you.” The police say the woman put the gun back after another employee came over to calm her down.

The barber was able to finish the haircut and the woman left with her two children afterward.

WJW-TV reports surveillance video captured images of the woman and authorities are asking for help identifying her.

Healthy eatery and a Columbus-area barbecue joint coming to Fairlawn

FAIRLAWN: CoreLife Eatery and City Barbecue are coming to the community.

The developer who plans to tear down the two aging Wyant buildings on West Market Street and construct a new restaurant and retail complex in their place has submitted paperwork to the city identifying the two chains as future tenants.

Development Management Group of Nashville, Tenn., is seeking final approval from the city Planning Commission for the project at 2858 and 2872 W. Market St. A meeting is set for 5:30 p.m. May 11.

The $1 million project involves building a 9,280-square-foot structure that would house the restaurants at opposite ends and an unidentified retail store in the middle.

“We’re very happy to have them and wish them success here,” Mayor Bill Roth said Friday.

Neither CoreLife nor City Barbecue has a location in the Akron-Canton area. Roth noted that many chains like to use Fairlawn as a test market because of the demographics.

CoreLife, which opened its first location in Syracuse, N.Y., in 2015, offers salad, grain and broth bowls, advertising itself as a healthy restaurant for active lifestyles. It says its fresh ingredients are free of trans fats, artificial colors, sweeteners, other artificial additives and GMOs.

City Barbecue, which began in 1999 in Columbus, offers barbecue meats. The chain operates 35 locations in Ohio, Indiana, Kentucky and North Carolina, according to its website. None are in Northeast Ohio.

Neither restaurant chain could be reached for comment.
