Dallas police announced Tuesday that an arrest has been made in connection with the shooting at a Koreatown hair salon that injured three women.

The three women, all of Korean descent, were shot dead at Hair World Salon last week after a gunman entered the establishment and opened fire. The women sustained non-life-threatening injuries and were discharged from hospital.

The FBI’s Dallas Field Office confirmed Monday that the agency has opened a federal hate crime investigation into the shooting.

Police Chief Eddie García said Friday the shooting may also be linked to two other race-related shootings in the city.
