Cops: Hair Weave Stops Bullet

hairbulletBriana Bonds was complaining of a headache Thursday, but police say her tightly-woven hair weave kept it from being much worse.

“I believe he was trying to kill me, I think he was on something,” said Bonds.

Authorities were called to the Country View Market, 5802 Swope Parkway, around 11:30 p.m. Wednesday.

Arriving officers found Bonds there. She told police she had pulled into the market and saw a man with whom she had recently ended an eight-month relationship with inside a car there.

A second man came up to the woman’s window and told her that the ex-boyfriend still loved her, an incident report filed by the Kansas City Police Department said.

The woman told the second man “I don’t love him.”

At that time, Bonds told police she heard gunshots and saw her ex-boyfriend walking toward the back of her car firing a handgun.

“He fired four or five shots at me, you don’t shot at someone you say you love,” said Bonds.

The victim sped away in her vehicle as her back window shattered, police said.

… Juan Kemp, 28, is facing charges in connection with the shooting.
