OCALA, Fla. (WCJB)-- A shooting in broad daylight at Fadez R Us Hair Studio in Ocala, Florida, has caused some nearby residents to raise their eyebrows.

Simone Johnson lives behind the studio and said she hates to see anybody get hurt, especially those living in her area. She frequently takes her granddaughter out for a walk in the neighborhood and hasn't worried about crime in the area in the past.

“You know, where I live at, it’s peaceful," Johnson said. "Hardly anything happens.”

When the Ocala Police Department responded to the shooting this weekend, they found both the shooter and the victim at the barbershop.

“We have not had an issue with this particular business," said Meghan Shay, public information officer for OPD. "We don’t have many issues in that area, so this is certainly an isolated event."

OPD has identified the shooter as Calvin Williams, the owner of Fadez R Us.

Williams was not arrested and is currently cooperating with police officials.

Police said they expect this investigation to take about three weeks.

TV20 has requested the name of the shooter and is waiting to hear back from OPD. Investigators confirmed there was an altercation involving two men, one of them the victim, that led to the shooting.
