Suspect Arrested for Dallas Koreatown Salon Shooting

Dallas police arrested a suspect in a shooting at a hair salon last week that wounded three women of Korean descent, an attack that raised fears that a gunman was targeting Asian-run businesses, the New York Times reports. The suspect, who was not immediately identified, was being interviewed and processed Tuesday.

Investigators have been examining whether the shooting last Wednesday could be classified as a hate crime. A racist motive was not initially suspected, but Police Chief Edgardo Garcia said Friday that "there may be a link to hate" and that the incident appeared to be related to two other shootings in recent weeks at Asian-run establishments. A burgundy minivan was present at the scene of the three separate shootings. No one was injured in the other two shootings, on May 10 and April 2, but both targeted Asian-run establishments in the same area as Wednesday's attack.
