Man Fires Gun at Barber Shop Customers During Discussion about Sandy Hook Shooting
A man from Wentzville, Missouri has been arrested after he allegedly became angry in the middle of a barber shop discussion that was centered around the Sandy Hook Elementary School shooting in Newtown, Connecticut last Friday, according to CBS St. Louis.
The man became so angry that he opened fire in the barber shop that was directed at another customer of the barber shop.
The suspect, identified as 57-year-old Lester Davis, was charged with assault, armed criminal action and unlawful possession of a weapon. Davis is from Wentzville and the incident occurred on Tuesday at the All Cuts Barber Shop in Wentzville.
At the barber shop, one of the customers said that the shooting at Sandy Hook made him want to kill the suspect in the attack. For reasons not known by police, Davis took the comment as a threat to himself and asked the customer, “You want to murder me?”
Police officers said that Davis then left the barber shop to go to his car, get his pistol and then fired three times towards the customer who made the comment. No one was hurt in the incident, according to the police report. Davis turned himself into authorities and is being held on $400,000 bond.
