Barbershop shooting victim dies

Posted: Updated:


Aiken County Coroner's office has confirmed 32 year old Zann Worrell Jr. of North Augusta died at GRU Medical Center on May 18, 2013 at 3:37 p.m


What began as a normal day, turned violent for one Beech Island community. 

Authorities responded to a call around 3 this afternoon of an attempted robbery and shooting at the Axis Barbershop on Sandbar Ferry Road.

Theo Dunbar, who owns a repair shop directly across the street, saw the incident.

Dunbar said he knows at least two people who were in the shop at the time of the shooting. They are his son and his nephew.

"My son was over there getting a haircut and one of my nephews was getting his haircut and that's what made me start crossing the road," Dunbar said. "When I crossed the road, the two guys who were doing the shooting came out running behind the building and jumped in a white civic."

Dunbar said his son told him that while waiting in the barbershop, one of the suspects approached him with a gun.  

"He said the boy put a gun to his head, told him to give him his wallet and give him all his money," Dunbar recalled. "He looked at him and said 'man you're playing?' He said 'no I'm for real. Give me money before I shoot you.'" 

Dunbar said his son then gave the man holding the gun what he wanted.

"He just gave him his wallet because he didn't have anything in it," Dunbar said. "The boy saw that nothing was in it, so he threw it on the floor."

While Dunbar's son and nephew were not shot, at least one person has been taken to the hospital after the shooting. There is no word on the person's condition at this time.
