Chicago barber accused of killing client who refused to pay for haircut

 Deshon Mcadory has been charged with first-degree murder in the shooting death of 31-year-old Christian McDougald at his Chicago-area barbershop


A barber in Chicago has been arrested and charged with murder after a customer refused to pay $15 for a haircut.

According to Cook County Assistant State’s Attorney Kevin Meehan, McDougald began arguing with barbers in the business located in Maywood, a suburb of Chicago on May 27 around 4 p.m. As the argument escalated, McDougald followed Mcadory to the back of the shop. Mcadory then allegedly shot McDougald in the chest.

Authorities stated that a gun that is believed to the murder weapon was found in Mcadory’s coat and witnesses identified Mcadory as the shooter. Furthermore, ammunition matching his shell casing were found in his car.

McDougald was transported to Loyola University Medical Center where he was pronounced dead. Mcadory’s attorney, Anthony Burch, claimed in court that Mcadory, who is licensed to carry, was “retreating” into the barbershop and characterized McDougald as the “aggressor.”
