An Ohio mother allegedly pointed a gun at a barber because her son's haircut was taking too long. The alleged incident took place at Allstate Barber College on Lorain Avenue, Cuyahoga County, Cleveland.

The incident was reported to have taken place on 14 April but was only recently shared on the Crime Stoppers of Cuyahoga County Facebook page, a police affiliated web hub.

Images show the woman holding what appears to be a gun just yards from her son, who sits in the barbers chair, while other adults, possibly staff, appear to try and console her.

She is reported to have become unsettled by the amount of time it was taking to cut her son's hair.

She then suddenly took a gun out her purse and said: "I got 2 clips. I'll pop you!"
