The incident occurred at approximately 7 p.m. at Eighty’s Rack Barbershop when Johnson shot a patron after an argument, according to Selma Police Department officer Lt. Curtis Muhannad.

When officer arrived on the scene, they found a black male in his thirties unresponsive and lying inside the barbershop with two gunshot wounds, according to a news release.
The victim, whose name was not released, died en route to Vaughan Regional Medical Center Muhannad said.
