juniors polo shirts Explosion damages Wichita barber shop
Maxwell says he and other Slice City barbers were not at the shop Wednesday night when someone set off the explosive device, destroying the front door, windows, and the floor.
“To know that someone really tried to sabotage something that we worked hard to build and be good for the community, it hurts a little. But it’s not going to keep us down,” Maxwell says.
After someone tried to set the shop on fire Tuesday, Maxwell said the shop had security cameras installed Wednesday and footage captured the explosion.
Maxwell says he thought someone was trying to set another fire, but the video showed a device set to explode, he says.
Investigators say they don’t want to release the video from Wednesday night’s incident at this time, but after watching it, Maxwell and other employees at the Slice City Barber say they are shocked by what’s happened.
“I was in awe, I was in shock,” Maxwel says. “I just can’t believe it. It looked like (the explosion) was professionally done,
like something you see out of a movie.”
