ATLANTA - After nearly two weeks without an arrest, a hairstylist accused of opening fire in a rival salon has been arrested.
He said rival stylist Corwin Pledger became upset when his client showed up at the J. Spot to fix a bad hairdo. Atlanta police sources told Young the client involved is Neffe, the sister of R&B superstar Keyshia Cole.
“We knew it wasn't a good thing when he came, but we thought it was going to be a quick exchange with words and then he was going to be gone. So, nobody really knew he would pull out a gun," J told Channel 2’s Ryan Young.
No one was hurt in the shooting, but a bullet pierced the floor. In an interview on radio station V-103, Pledger said he was aiming for the stylist’s foot.
On Tuesday, Young learned that Pledger had been charged in the shooting. Sources said he avoided police by dressing in drag.
