Puyallup PD: Barber shot to death while giving 8-year-old a haircut

Puyallup Police are investigating a deadly shooting of a barber, who was shot multiple times while giving a haircut to an 8-year-old. 

The shooting happened at JQ Barber Shop at 112 E. Stewart Ave. It's set up where there are individual rooms for haircuts, so the suspect had to walk into a specific area to shoot the victim, according to police.

The 43-year-old victim was pronounced dead at the scene. He was identified as the owner of JQ Barber Shop. 

The 8-year-old was not physically hurt, police told FOX 13.  

There was a "significant" police presence in the 100 block of E. Stewart Ave. A police K9 has also been deployed in the area to search for a suspect. The suspect has yet to be located. 

The suspect, who ran off, is described as a man, about 5'08" who was wearing black pants, a black jacket and possibly a mask. 

Police are asking people who work or live in the area who have security cameras to check them for a person matching the suspect description. If you have video of the suspect, you are asked to call the Puyallup Police Department tip line at 253-770-3343 or email tips@puyallupwa.gov.
