LOS ANGELES, CALIFORNIA - AUGUST 26: A barber from King's Cutz gives a haircut to a client beneath an awning outside the barbershop while observing safety restrictions on August 26, 2020 in Los Angeles, California. Barbershops and hair salons in Los Angeles currently may only operate outdoors to prevent the spread of the coronavirus (COVID-19).

In an incident that’s likely to hurt future business, a Florida barber has been arrested after he reportedly shot at two customers who complained he’d missed their haircut appointments.

Boca Raton resident John Digiovanni, 35, is facing two counts of attempted first-degree murder in connection with the incident, which occurred Monday in the parking lot of First Methodist Church, the Palm Beach County Sheriff’s Office reports. Earlier in the day, one of the customers had called Digiovanni to ask why he failed to show up for his and another client’s appointments — and the barber reportedly flew off the handle, according to his arrest report.

After agreeing to meet the men outside the church to discuss the matter, Diglovanni arrived and immediately began yelling at them from his vehicle, police say. When one of the disgruntled customers approached him, Diglovanni pulled out a gun and shot at both of them, per the report. Digiovanni is being held in Palm Beach County Jail on no bond.
