A shooting at a Dallas hair salon that injured three women of Korean descent may be part of a string of shootings targeting Asian businesses, police said Friday.
Dallas Police Chief Eddie Garcia said a similar vehicle was used in three recent shootings, including Wednesday’s attack at a hair salon described as Korean-owned.
The article goes on to state the following:
The motive in the shootings is unknown, though Garcia indicated Friday case is now a hate crime investigation, just a day after he said “we can confidently say that hate was not a motivating factor.”
According to the chief, that comment was made before facts led to a possible link between the shootings.
“Often times it does take this long,” he said. “I’m very fortunate that our hard-working men and women did put it together so that we can clarify some things, in the abundance of caution, to give our communities a heads-up.”
The first two attacks, described as drive-by shootings, occurred on April 2 and May 10. Witnesses saw a red or burgundy minivan or vehicle. A similar, older-model minivan was seen at Wednesday’s shooting at Hair World Salon.
In a, police said the suspect walked into the Hair World Salon and began firing a gun.
One of the people injured in the Wednesday shooting was salon owner Chang Hye Jin, 44. She always maintained that the shooting was a hate crime.
“It especially feels targeted because he didn’t even demand money,” she said. “He just came in to shoot people.”
“Three female victims were shot and transported to an area hospital with non-life-threatening injuries. The suspect is described as a Black male approximately 5’7” to 5’10”, thin build with curly medium length hair and a connecting beard. He left the scene in an unknown maroon minivan.”
The Dallas gunman has targeted 3 Asian-owned businesses. There were shootings on 4/2, 5/10, and on Wed 5/11, where 3 Korean women were shot. It was the same suspect in a maroon-colored minivan. They were *not* robberies. The suspect is *not* yet caught. https://t.co/4VAzUPlIQ3
