Police are searching for a gunman who was captured on video running from the scene after he allegedly shot a barber outside of his shop in Fort Lauderdale.
The shooting happened the night of Jan. 4 in the 3200 block of West Broward Boulevard.
The victim, Kevin Williamson, said he's grateful to be alive after being shot in the chest and the hand.
"This finger just came off completely. It was hanging by the skin," Williamson said Tuesday.
Williamson said the shooting happened outside Executive Salon Barbershop, where he has been working for the past five years. He said a car came into the parking lot and almost hit his car, and when he gestured for the driver to move over, a man jumped out of the car and shot him.
Surveillance footage from a nearby business showed the suspect fleeing the scene on foot.
"I was so surprised, I didn’t hear the shot, I didn’t know," Williamson said. "I just felt the burning and the blood so the first thing that comes to mind was to apply pressure to the wound. Then I yell to the other barbers that I got shot and they called the police."
Williamson has had two surgeries and had a third one coming up.
He wanted to send this message to whoever shot him.
"Turn yourself in," he said. "I'm a father of three and you almost took me away from my kids."
Police are asking anyone with information on the suspect or the shooting to call them at 954-828-5914 or Crime Stoppers at 954-493-TIPS.
