One woman was fatally shot while another was hospitalized with multiple stab wounds after a disturbance turned violent at a Bandera Oaks barber shop, San Antonio police said Wednesday.

Officers were initially called to the 11300 block of Bandera Road for a stabbing, Police Chief William McManus said.

Once officers arrived, they found a deceased woman in her 20s lying in the back of a barber shop with a gunshot wound.

Another woman, who is also in her 20s, told police she was stabbed by the same suspect. She was able to flee from the barber shop before calling police.

The woman was rushed to the hospital but still conscious, McManus said.

The owner of the Diesel Barbershop, Shayne Brown, told KSAT his employees were getting ready to reopen the business starting Friday when a man walked in asking to make an appointment.

The employees told the man he needed a form of payment, Brown said. The man stepped out to get it, and when he returned, he was armed.

“We’re up here cleaning and prepping to make sure our clients are safe for when we reopen Friday,” said Brown. “And then, something like this with no rhyme or reason of any kind. From my understanding, no one has ever seen this individual. It’s just senseless.”

Brown said the employee who was stabbed was taken to the hospital, but that she was still talking to them over the phone.

McManus said investigators have identified a suspect and are working to gather more information on him. He is believed to be a man in his early or mid 30s.
