SAN ANTONIO – San Antonio police are hunting down a gunman wanted for a shooting at a South Side hair salon earlier this month.

SAPD believe the man walked into the Hair Talk beauty salon in the 2000 block of Pleasanton Road and shot the victim in the legs.

At the time of the shooting, police said the victim was shot twice in the legs as he sat defenseless in a chair, where he had been getting a haircut just moments before.

Witnesses told police that the gunman walked in the salon, pointed a gun at the people inside and ordered them to move away from the 26-year-old victim, who was still sitting in the chair.

The four employees and one other customer moved away.

Police said that is when the gunman fired shots at the victim's legs.

Crime Stoppers is offering a reward up to $5,000 for information that leads to an arrest.

If you know any information you are asked to call 224-STOP.
