A Chicago barbershop owner remains in custody after allegedly shooting and killing a customer who refused to pay for a haircut following an argument.
Deshon Mcadory, 40, the owner of Studio 914 barbershop in the suburb of Maywood, was charged with first-degree murder after allegedly shooting Christian McDougald, 31, outside the storefront last Thursday.

However, when McDougald reportedly followed Mcadory around toward a back door entrance, Mcadory shot McDougald in the chest. He was transported to a hospital and pronounced dead.
The shooting was caught on surveillance video, a witness identified Mcadory as the shooter, ammunition matching a shell casing found at the scene was found in his car and a gun believed to be the one fired in the shooting was found in a coat believed to belong to Mcadory, the Chicago Sun-Times reported.
According to Anthony Burch, a defense attorney, Mcadory both a Firearm Owners Identification card and a concealed carry permit and was acting in self-defense.
