Police Still Looking for Father Who Shot Son’s Barber 3 Times Over a Bad Haircut

A barber is expected to survive after an angry father shot him. According to KHOU 11, the barber was shot by the father after he had finished cutting his son’s hair.

Detectives investigating the shooting say the 13-year-old boy walked into the barbershop on his own one Saturday in December. After getting his hair cut, he returned sometime later with his father.

This is when things went awry. As KHOU 11 reports, the father reportedly didn’t think his teenage son’s hair was cut the right way and confronted the barber about it. As a result, he agreed to fix the boy’s hair for free.

Detective Wallace Wyatt said of the shooting to KHOU 11:

“I think it’s just crazy for anyone to shoot anybody over a haircut, period. Like I said, 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. 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.'”

According to local authorities, the father is still on the run but it’s unclear if he kept his son with him. They say there were several people at the barbershop who witnessed the shooting, but now they are looking for surveillance footage to help with their investigation.

While the man’s name is yet to be released, police say they have identified him and believe they are looking for a gray four-door sedan, which could possibly be a Honda Accord.
