It's been more than a month since a DeKalb County barber was fatally shot in Stone Mountain.

According to police, the shooting happened in the 5600 block of Memorial Drive at Hair We Are Family Salon.

Saluhuddin Salaam, 36, had just finished cutting a customer's hair when that customer turned and fired on him.

The suspect decided to rob Salaam and shot him three times in the torso, according to police.

Salaam died at the hospital just before 4:00 p.m.

Family and friends of Salaam are handing out flyers throughout the community hoping someone knows something that will lead to an arrest.

"I want justice to be served I want the perpetrators to be caught and I want them to be punished to the full extent of the law," said Salaam's mother Mahasin Salaam.

DeKalb County Police tell FOX 5 they do not have any leads in the case, but there is a reward for any information that can lead to an arrest.
