An argument over a haircut almost turned deadly Saturday at a Texas barbershop.
An upset father shot an employee three times at a barbershop in Katy, Texas after his son was upset about the haircut he received. The 13-year-old boy got the cut early Saturday, and came back to the shop with his father, according to KHOU.
The employee is in stable condition, the news outlet reported. Even though the barber fixed the haircut free of charge, the father ended up arguing with the man outside of the shop in its parking lot. The father is still at-large.
"The suspect is a black male. Vehicle may be a gray 4-door sedan, possibly Honda Accord," the Harris County Sheriff’s Office tweeted Saturday.
Authorities are asking for the man to step forward and turn himself in. "I think it’s just crazy for anyone to shoot anybody over a haircut, period," Detective Wallace Wyatt told KHOU. "The disturbing part is his 13-year-old son witnessed this, which makes him a part of this, so this 13-year-old son knows he needs to come forward and tell us what happened."
"The father knows he needs to come forward and tell us what happened," Wyatt continued. "Just to be an example, to be a good father and say, ‘I messed up. I have something to prove to my son, and this is how you fix it.'"
