Dallas police announced Tuesday that an arrest has been made in connection to the shooting at a Koreatown hair salon that left three women injured.

The three women, all of Korean descent, were shot at Hair World Salon last week after a gunman walked inside the establishment and opened fire. The women suffered non-life threatening injuries and were released from the hospital.

The FBI Dallas field office confirmed Monday that the agency has opened a federal hate crimes probe into the shooting.

Police Chief Eddie García said Friday that the shooting may also be connected to two other race-related shootings in the city.
