MIAMI.- Four women have been shot, three fatally, after a man opened fire inside the Las Dominicanas hair salon in central Florida, authorities said. The suspect left the salon and then fatally shot himself at a nearby home, according to police.

The gunman burst into Hair Salon in Casselberry and started shooting late Thursday morning, a witness told NBC , citing WESH-TV.


According to the Orlando Sentinel, three of the women were pronounced dead at the scene; the fourth victim was taken to an area hospital, where her condition was unknown.

The witness, who works at the hair salon near State Road 436 and Aloma Avenue, said some of the victims were his relatives.

Police say it was a domestic-related issue.

“Distraught relatives and friends of the victims were arriving at the salon, located in a small strip mall, Thursday afternoon,” reports WESH-TV.

My Gosh!
Somebody have mercy of their souls...!
Sometimes we came to this country and there are some weirdos that think that because we are not americans we must be stupid or something..And they can do whatever they can!

I am checking on the news here in FL and there is NOTHING! I am pretty sure that if they were white rich beautiful american ladies the story would be quite different!

USA is a f***king double moral country!

RIP those poor ladies..

victor, do you live in a cave? don't you have access to the internet? don't you have a tv? this has been on the news since morning. there is an array of reports from just about every media outlet. do not blame the USA for the lack of information. blame yourself for being unable to cope with technology.

You can shove that skin color garbage up your unwashed dungvent, you welfare parasite. Are you just trying to obscure the fact that a Dominican immigrant shot some other Dominican immigrants? Go away, you pathetic leech.

Actually, it is plastered all over the news here. He was being violent, and she was told by police she needed an injunctionbefore they could intervene. He threatened to kill her if she followed through with out. The girlfriend had filed an injunction against him anyway, and they were due in court that day. A terrible tragedy. I feel for the victims, and their families. Casselberry is a diverse area as well a right knit community. Nobody here is discriminating against anyone, and some of these comments ate pretty racist, in both directions. It's unnecessary, and distracts from the topic at hand: a young women lost her life bc she refused to be in a controlling/violent relationship, and others paid dearly s well /smh. Who moderates this board, anyway?

...and just bc something isn't airing at the exact time/place you'd like doesn't mean it's an American conspiracy, or that it isn't on anywhere in the state of Florida. I'm in Florida. Casselberry to be exact. I live ten minutes away from the location. It is overriding the rest if the local news. Try to make less broad generalizations. It gives ppl the impression that you're ignorant :/

A year ago in Southern California, an angry ex-husband donned a bulletproof vest before killing his ex-wife and six of her fellow stylists and patrons at a hair salon, police said. Scott Dekraai is also accused of killing a man in the parking lot. He is awaiting trial on murder charges.

I hear ya, Dread. Since Vic has such a hard time with this, and believes you have to be rich & white for anyone to give a crap in this country I'm gonna help' him out. They're even talking about it in LA. That's on the other side of our country in case your ability to read a map is also compromised. New info: the girlfriend survived. The store co owner, an employee and a customer were killed
. I'd have included the hyperlink for you of course, but it appears to be prohibited. Looks like you'll have to figure it out...or you can just keep trolling this page...whichever.

I live in South Florida.I didnt see ANYTHING about it on TV..

On the local news ( channel 7) they were talking about futbot, Romney, the local weather, Local LEO, and airline issues , small politicans, etc.., but NOTHING related to that topic.The same with Univision and Telemundo
I had to do a research on the internet to find some info about it.
I've never EVER mention "local Florida internet"
So, let's try some basic math:
a=b, b=c, them a=c
1.-Every lie is basically a twisted true
2.-A liar is somebody that says lies
3.-(conclusion): Dreadlocks is a friggin' liar

Basic math!

Dreadlocks, I am amazed at your attacks against ohhhvictor considering you usually agree with most criticisms of the U.S., especially in matters dealing with minorities. What has ohhvictor said that is false? There IS a double standard with the way the U.S. media reports and reacts to violence against minorities, you know this very well! I don't understand why you're defending FL's media of all cases, too.

You are incorrect, JEM. The only biased coverage I see is when it takes a day or 2 longer to publish a crime suspect's picture when they are not caucsian. Your observations could possibly be slanted buy your own biases.

DaveB, it is YOU not I, that is incorrect. Not only does the media waste no time in posting a picture of a suspect when they ARE a minority, the media has also come under wide criticism for the SIGNIFICANT difference in reporting a crime when the victim IS NOT WHITE, which by the way, is all documented. So, it is you that has the slanted observations because you, like Ann Coulter recently said, probably really do believe racism is over in America.

You see what you see I see what I see. Your bias is that you believe they're all the same thing. That's just the common bigotry of the complete egocentric, JEM. Are you really so narrow and uninformed to think that you encompass the entire world's experience? You need to step outside your tiny little neighborhood more often.
