Dallas police now investigating Asian salon shooting as a hate crime

  • A shooting that left three women wounded at a hair salon in Texas may have been "hate-motivated," Dallas police said.
  • The statement comes a day after authorities said that hate was not a motivating factor in the attack.
  • A still unidentified man in all-black attire entered Hair World Salon at 2216 Royal Lane in northwest Dallas on May 11 and started firing multiple rounds at people. He then fled in a red "older-style" minivan, police said.
  • Witnesses to two drive-by shootings in Dallas on April 2 and May 10 told investigators of a suspect fleeing in a similar vehicle described as a red or burgundy van or car. 
  • The Dallas Police Department, which is now cooperating with different law agencies, described the suspect as a 5-foot-7 to 5-foot-10 tall Black man with a thin build and curly, medium-length hair. 

A shooting that left three women wounded at a hair salon in Texas earlier this week may have been “hate-motivated,” according to local authorities. 

Dallas Police Department chief Eddie Garcia said during a press briefing on Friday that the incident may be linked to two other recent shootings targeting Asian-run businesses.
