Police: Texas barbershop worker shot over haircut


A barber in Texas was shot over a disagreement about the suspected shooter’s son’s haircut, according to the Harris County Sheriff’s Office.

Deputies from the Houston-area department responded to the barber shop, where a male employee was shot by a customer who then fled the scene, the sheriff’s office tweeted Saturday.

Officials said that witnesses claimed the suspect “shot an employee while arguing over a haircut given to the suspect’s son.”

Harris County Detective Wallace Wyatt told KPRC that the argument was over a haircut given to the alleged shooter’s 13-year-old son.

"He went home, came back. They fixed the haircut for free and then that's when the altercation occurred," Wyatt said.

"That is one of the worst ones I've heard," he added, "especially with your son being here, witnessing what you're doing."

The barber was shot three times and is listed in stable condition, KPRC reports.

Police said the suspect is a black male who may be driving a gray Honda Accord.
