Black Woman Hates Her Hairdo – Decides to Shoot Barber

Who would have thought that being a hairdresser could be hazardous? Cut fingers we understand, but having a customer return with a gun to kill you is another matter.  Exactly that happened at a San Diego, California Barber Shop on February 10.

Customer returns with a gun

Adrian Blanche Swain, 29,  returned to the barbershop around noon on February 10, brandishing a gun, and claiming that barber Manny Montero had ruined her life.

But when she originally left the shop, she had tipped Manny a generous $20 on top of the $20 cut.

Later, when she came back with a gun, one whole side of her head had been shaved with a razor. A psychotic break?

“She said, ‘Look what you did to my hair. She came in with a bald spot on the side, and I am like, ‘I didn’t do that.'” Manny Montero

Swain pointed the gun at Montero and pulled the trigger 3 times…click, click, click…but the gun jammed. San Diego Police acknowledged that the gun was loaded, but malfunctioned as she tried to shoot.

“She had it. She was gonna do it. For some reason, God was there…Grabbed her arm, grabbed the gun. We threw her to the floor and held her until authorities came.” Manny Montero


Police charged her with attempted murder.

The other barber, Chris Tatum, described Swain as yelling that her life was over and for someone to shoot her. Tatum tried to calm her by telling her no one was going to shoot her. Then the men tackled her. He stated that if the gun had worked, three or four people could have been shot.

Montero’s brush with death caused him to leave early to go see his young sons. But he said he was more angry than afraid.

“Your whole life runs in front of your eyes…” Manny told NBC San Diego.
