Texas Man Wanted For Shooting Barber Over His Son's 'Bad Haircut'

The employee was shot three times.

Nobody likes a bad haircut, but one Texas father took things too far.

A man is now wanted for allegedly shooting his son's barber 3 times - over a bad haircut. His son was watching from a nearby vehicle.

The incident happened at Magic's Kutts & Fades in the 23900 block of Franz Road in Harris County, Texas. The Harris County Sheriff's Office responded to the shooting just before 5 pm on December 21.

KPRC reported that deputies allege that the customer apparently shot the male employee during an argument over a haircut given to the suspect’s son. Deputies said the gunman fled the scene in a possible gray four-door sedan.

The employee was shot three times. He is listed in stable condition.

In a later update the Harris County Sheriff's Office later released that the suspect is a black male and that the vehicle may be a gray 4-door sedan, possibly Honda Accord.

“I think it’s just crazy for anyone to shoot anybody over a haircut, period," Detective Wallace Wyatt tells KHOU 11.

"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.'"

There were several witnesses inside the barber shop when it happened. Detectives said they are also looking for surveillance video.
