Kevin Antonio Jordan II has been arrested for attempted murder. Authorities believe he opened fire inside of a barbershop filled with customers during an attempted robbery.

Deputies with the Escambia County Sheriff's Office (ECSO) responded to The G Spot Barber Shop located on the 3000 block of North Pace Boulevard on Friday, March 23rd for a shots fired complaint. Once there, the responding deputy observed the windshield of a vehicle had a bullet hole and the that the front window of the business was shattered, according to the report.

Witnesses told them an unknown black nan wearing a black hoodie entered the shop, pulled out a gun and told everyone inside to get on the ground. He began shooting, but one of the barbers fought back.

According to the police report, one barber pushed his client out of the chair and returned fire with his Rock Island Armory 1911 .45 caliber handgun. The client sustained an injury to his right ankle.

Days later, someone told the barber that Kevin "Kel Kel" Jordan was the shooter. After looking at the surveillance video and a photo lineup, investigators had enough evidence to arrest him. He was arrested Thursday, March 29th and charged with felony homicide, weapon offense (2 counts), possession of a weapon and robbery. He is booked into the Escambia County Jail on a $1,300,000 bond.
