Woman angry over haircut allegedly tries to shoot barber

SAN DIEGO - Hours after getting a haircut, a dissatisfied customer returned to the barbershop and tried to kill a barber, police said.

Adrian Blanche Swain, 29, got a haircut around 9:30 a.m. Wednesday and returned to the 619 Barber Shop on 30th Street three hours later complaining about it, San Diego police Sgt. Ray Battrick said.  Swain pulled out a gun, tried to pull the trigger three times, but the gun jammed, he said.

"The gun had bullets but malfunctioned,'' Battrick said.

The barber and another person wrestled the woman to the ground and were able to get the gun out of her hand, police said.

Swain was arrested by police and faces charges of attempted murder.
