This time an alleged robber was shot dead by a customer inside the barbershop, causing fear, anguish, and a loss of business for the family.
Bilal Lado from Al Madina barbershop in Laudium, who referred to his uncle as âfatherâ, described him as âgood manâ who provided for his family.
Their barbershop is opposite the local school and near a mosque. On Tuesday morning, a few customers came to get their hair cut.
An armed man clad in a black jacket and bullet proof vest stands guard at the entrance of the barbershop. He was hired after the shooting last Friday.
Describing the incident, Lado said: âWe were busy and it was very full. Customers and their children were sitting all over.â
Two men entered the barbershop and greeted: âAs-Salaam-Alaikum (peace be unto you)â.
âI thought they were customers. One of our good customers was inside of the shop and took out his phone to call other guys to come in from outside. Thatâs when he [the alleged robber] pulled out his gun and told us everybody must come inside.
âSome people were still outside and they were told to come inside. Our security guard, who was not armed, was outside and ran away. He had no spray, no stick, no gun, nothing.â
