Detroit barber shop employee charged with murder in coworker's death

- A barber shop employee is facing murder charges in the death of a 29-year-old man after an argument in the shop.

Plymouth resident Jamar Woodmore, 29, is facing four charges, including first degree murder and felony firearm, accused of shooting and killing 36-year-old Leon Webb of Detroit.

Woodmore entered a not guilty plea after police say he and Webb got into an argument, both working at the Final Kut Barbershpop on 7 Mile near Littlefield.

"My brother didn't allow nothing to happen until he had the little boy that was in the chair removed out of the chair. He made sure that he was safe," said Love Webb, his sister.

Webb's family says after arguing inside, the fight turned physical outside, and after losing the fight, police say Woodmore went to his car and got a gun.

"They were friends. They fought and that should've been the end of that. Bringing bullets into it is a whole other different ball game," Love said.

Police say Woodmore shot Webb, then took off in his car. Webb later died at the hospital. His family says they're grateful Woodmore decided to turn himself in to police four days later, but it doesn't change what's already been done. Now two children are left without their father.

People were showing love on both of them, showing love on the family," Love said.

She remembers her younger brother as a jokester, a loving man who took care of everybody. She says that's what his legacy will be going forth.

Webb's sister, his family and friends are only beginning to cope as they plan his funeral and realize there is another family destroyed by the actions of this man.

"His feelings were hurt, and because of your feelings being hurt, you wanted to hurt many more feelings and that's what you did," Love said.

Police didn't say what the men were arguing over.
