Two shooting suspects accused of killing one man and wounding another are still on the run.

The two Perry men are considered to be armed and dangerous.

Those men are Rufus Lee, Jr. and Issac Jackson, III.

Only stopping in her beauty salon for a moment to pick up an item, Perry resident Lemetris McBride is afraid to open for business while police are trying to hunt down 30-year-old Issac Jackson, III and 24-year-old Rufus Lee, Jr.

They are accused of killing her close friend, 19-year-old Henry Hughes.

McBride said, "He just never did anything wrong to anybody. He might've done some things but it's never been to hurt or harm anybody. He's always been a happy go-lucky child. All in all it wasn't worth him losing his life for."

Hughes died Monday night inside of Daddy's Place on the corner of highways 19 and 98.

Police say Jackson and Lee walked into the barbershop after 5:00 and shot him.

Officers say another man was shot once and survived.

Perry resident Ronnie Thompson said, "It's not really a surprise but it's a shock at the moment for something like that to happen--two people at the same time. We're not like Miami. But, it's just stunning."

Police say the incident appears to be a robbery.

"Now it got me thinking if I can work all day to make money, then at the end of the day night somebody comes wanting to rob me, kill me, leave my four kids without a mother over a couple of dollars; it's not right. We're not safe in our own community." Said, McBride.

Police say Jackson and Lee are armed and dangerous, which is why the community is upset because both suspects are known to have violent criminal records.
Authorities are protecting his identity of the shooting survivor right now, but he was brought to a hospital in Tallahassee.

    I want to say to everyone that the racism need to stop. A young man has lost his life to a senseless act of violence. You should have more respect for the families involved. It can happen to anyboy regardless of race, sexuality, etc. To the people that are showing hate against blacks get over it God made everyone who they are and nothing can be done about. To the blacks that respond to the negative comments let it go and let god deal with it.The things that i read sadden my heart that people could be so cruel and harsh. To let everyone know that you are who you allow yourself to be. To every black reading this the world has not ended for you. Blacks have been sterotyped for years but never has it stopped me. I also want to say that not all blacks are uneducated. I am a college graduate in fact I am a nurse. Maybe one day those with harden hearts will change their mind about black people. You never know who God put forth in you life. Im praying for everyone to LOVE ONE AS GOD LOVE'S US!

    they would be writin the tickets if they were not busy investigating shooting, murders, crack dealers, robberies, etc... they only have 2 or three officers wurking at a time. maybe they need some additional officers to help write those tickets......

    so why aren't they writing tickets to all the people who are outside the 98 and the infero with open containers if they are up there every night? they sure would be writing tickets to the white people hanging outside the other bars with their open containers.

    This was a senseless act and the real thing is that someone lost their life if they were black or white drug dealer or business man in a shirt and tie,they still have family and friends who care about them and have to read these comments. WCTV needs to start weeding out these comments but everyone is entitled to their freedom of speech but we all need to think about the fact of how we would feel if that was your brother, son, nephew and so on. insteasd of downing the city of Perry the police department or the sheriff we should be all praying for change and for each other.

    It seems 2 me that yall have let this simple minded person gus get under yall skin and make this situation all about him when it's not. Who even cares what he thinks, he sounds like a child acting out for attention. So please stop wasting your time and thoughts on him and just focus on getting yall town back to the way it used to be before I left. My heart and prayers go out to the family of Boogie,and what goes around comes around!!!!

    I don't understand where people are saying that the police in perry are scared. They are everywhere all the time. Everywhere I go I see police. Police in perry don't play. They will put you in jail. Its the judge and the state attorney that keep putting these people right back out on the streets. The police come up in the 98 all the timeand they come up in the Infernal Club every weekend. Whoever keeps saying the police is scared is crazy.
