A gunman remains on the loose after storming into a Dallas hair salon Wednesday afternoon and shooting three women, reports said.

The shooting happened after 2 p.m. at Hair World Salon, a business located in a shopping center in a district full of Asian-owned businesses, according to WFAA-TV.

An unidentified suspect stopped his dark-colored minivan on a six lane road in front of the plaza, walked into the store and began incoherently shouting before opening fire, KXAS-TV reported.

The shooter fired at least four times and hit the three victims — the salon owner, an employee and a customer — in their limbs before fleeing the scene in the waiting vehicle, police reportedly said.

Dallas police describe the shooter as a Black male about 5 feet, 7 inches to 5 feet, 10 inches with a thin build, curly hair and a beard. He was seen driving a maroon minivan.

The injured women, all of whom are Korean, were expected to survive, and the suspect — who police identified as black — remained in the wind, according to the outlets.

The motive for the crime was unknown, but police said there was no immediate evidence it was a hate crime, according to KXAS.

The FBI was reportedly assisting Dallas Police in the investigation.

The attack comes more than a year after the March 2021 shooting spree at three massage parlors and spas in Atlanta, which saw eight people killed, including six Asian women. Robert Aaron Long later pleaded guilty and was sentenced to life without parole.
