Police were called to Takeover Barber Shop, 2510 Peach Orchard Road, around 7:35 p.m. after Kwame Demond Bryant, 35, of Yates Drive, fired one shot in the parking lot.

According to an incident report, the victim, Kevin Jamaree Roberson, 18, entered the barber shop and asked for a haircut. Roberson told police Bryant told him shop was closed before pulling a .40-caliber handgun, chasing Roberson from the store and firing one shot in his direction that struck a parked vehicle.

Bryant told police Roberson was grabbing at his waistline as if he was reaching for a gun and asked for money before the shooting occurred. Roberson did not display a weapon.

Bryant has been charged with reckless conduct.

So what happened ringmel1968? It sounds a little over the top for a barber to carry a gun in his shop and much less shoot it in the parking lot.

Why does it sound over the

Why does it sound over the top for a barber to have a gun in his business. Sad to say, but this is the Peach Orchard Rd. area and NOT having a gun seems over to the top to me.

As for shooting in the parking lot.....it seems he was shooting at someone he thought was trying to rob him (according to the article).

lets see young male walks in shop at closing time and asked for a hair cut...i am sure operating hours are posted on the door but "ole jamaree" walks in anyway...sounds like an attempted robbery in the making to me...the shop keeper did exactly like he was supposed to do to protect his property..too bad he missed, it would have been one less roach ultimately will wind up in the prison system

My best friend is a cosmologist, and she ALWAYS has a gun at work. That is nothing more than responsible preparedness.
