Man Allegedly Killed Wife at Georgia Hair Salon, Shot Himself While Their Daughter Was Nearby


Police in Duluth, Georgia say a man murdered his wife at a hair salon, then shot himself in the head. The couple’s daughter was inside the business at the time, cops said. She did not sustain injuries.

The shooting occurred around 10 a.m. on Monday.

“Duluth is pretty quiet,” Officer Ted Sadowski told WSB-TV. “We don’t get this kind of stuff. We are working diligently to get to the bottom of this.”

Police said the suspect was taken to Gwinnett Medical Center for treatment. Neither the victim nor the alleged killer were publicly identified. Cops said they have no plans to do so today.

The suspect was described, however, as a 59-year-old Korean male, according to 11 Alive.

Cops said the shooter kicked everyone out of the Edge Total Hair salon and shot the woman as she was trying to leave. The final shot was execution-style in the parking lot, Sadowski told Fox 5 Atlanta.

The suspect was found having shot himself in the head, police claim. The victim was described as an employee for the salon. Her husband shot her three or four times, cops said. Police suggested that the shooter may have been upset about an imminent divorce.
