Jamar Woodmore, the 29-year-old Plymouth man accused of killing a fellow barber during an argument Thursday at their barbershop on Detroit's west side, was denied bond at his arraignment Tuesday morning at 36th District Court, records show.

Woodmore, a barber at the shop, is charged with first-degree premeditated murder, carrying a concealed weapon, felony firearm, and being a felon in possession of a firearm.

The shooting happened at about 3:45 p.m. Thursday at the Final Kut barbershop on West Seven Mile near Littlefield, west of Outer Drive.

Police said Woodmore and the victim, a 27-year-old man named Leon Webb, were both employed at the barbershop and they got into an argument while at work.

After they took the argument outside, Woodmore and Webb fought. Webb won, and police say that after the loss, Woodmore retrieved a gun from his vehicle and fatally shot Webb before fleeing.

Webb was taken to a hospital where he died from multiple gunshot wounds. Woodmore turned himself in to police over the weekend.

Woodmore is on probation after pleading to a 2016 charge of carrying a concealed weapon, records show.

Woodmore is due back in court on July 17 for his probable cause conference, and again on July 24 for his preliminary exam, both before Judge Kenneth King.
