Police: Man tells everyone to leave hair salon before shooting, killing ex-wife

GWINNETT COUNTY, Ga. — A woman is dead after police say her ex-husband shot her at the hair salon she owned before he took his own life Monday.

Police have identified the victim as 48-year-old Myyoung Lee and the suspect as 62-year-old Namyoon Cha.

Police told Channel 2's Tom Regan that Cha ordered everyone to leave the Edge Total Hair salon off Pleasant Hill Road, which Lee owned and operated.

Lee was shot twice by her ex-husband as she was running out, according to police.

Cha went back into the salon, where police said he shot himself in the head. He was taken to the Gwinnett Medical Center where he later died.


Police said the couple had recently divorced and the couple's daughter was at the salon during the shooting, but she was not injured.

"Duluth is pretty quiet, We don't get this kind of stuff, We are working diligently to get to the bottom of this," Duluth officer Ted Sadowski said.
