The owner of the business,Craig Carlock, told NBC Action News that Jackson started renting space in his business just five weeks ago.
He believes who ever killed Jackson was mistaken as a customer.
"They were either a customer or they were coming in for a service at the time," said Carlock.
The front door of Barbershop 67 automatically locks, so Carlock believes Jackson unlocked the door for the gunman who ultimately took his life. A scary reality that fellow barber, Vanessa Alexander, finds even more unsettling.
"I worked here for an entire two weeks by myself, that could have been me," said Alexander.
Kansas City police are still investigating the murder and have not made any arrests in the case. Anyone who has any information regarding the crime is asked to call the TIPS hotline at (816)474-TIPS.
