A suspect in a Koreatown salon shooting has been arrested by Dallas police

The police announced early Tuesday that a suspect has been arrested in connection with a shooting that wounded three women in a hair salon in Koreatown. According to authorities, the shooting might have been a hate crime.

Authorities have said a man dressed all in black opened fire at the salon, then drove off in a maroon minivan. Garcia said investigators found that a similar vehicle was reported to be involved in two other recent shootings, including an April 2 drive-by in the area where the salon is located. No one was injured in either of those shootings.

According to Garcia, the shooting at Hair World Salon on Wednesday may have been linked to two other shootings at Asian-owned businesses.

The suspect was being interviewed and processed, the Dallas Police Department said, and Chief Eddie Garcia was expected to release additional information about the arrest later in the day.
