Eight people were killed and another critically wounded when a gunman opened fire in a busy hair salon in Southern California yesterday (12th). After opening fire the gunman got into a truck and drove away from ‘Salon Meritage.’ However, he was stopped by officers about a half-mile away and surrendered without incident while saying he had multiple weapons with him.
Friends of the salon owner said the gunman was the ex-husband of a stylist who worked there. Mr. Bowles would only say, “There may be something to the motive as to a relationship with somebody in the salon.
An owner of a salon just two doors down from the scene of the shootings, said she and her customers and employees heard gunshots, and her receptionist saw a man through a window as he was shot in a parking lot.
“There was like a pop, pop and my receptionist screamed, ‘he just shot that man’ and we all ran into the bathroom and locked the door,’” Ms. Criswell said.
