D.C. Hairstylist Shoots Client for Complaining About her Weave

October 5, 2015

A Washington hairdresser who shot a dissatisfied client in the back after she complained about her hair weave, was sentenced Tuesday to serve 5 to 20 years in state prison.

“I didn't know a .38-caliber could be considered a deadly weapon,” claims Monique M. Reed, 40, who sobbed loudly and begged Washington County Judge, John DiSalle, not to send her back to jail.

Reed insisted during the sentencing that she was the victim and was protecting herself when she was attacked. “I was by myself and two people jumped me,” says Reed. “That .38-caliber didn't even take her down.”
