A female employee of a Paulding County hair salon was shot to death Monday morning. And police have charged a 45-year-old man with her murder.

Mr. Robert Steven McDaniel allegedly surrendered to officers shortly after the shooting and was transported to the Paulding County Detention Center where he was being held without bond Monday night, Paulding County Sheriff’s spokesman Cpl. Ashley Henson said.

The incident happened around 11:45 a.m. at Julia’s Hair Salon in the 8800 block of Dallas-Acworth Highway, Cpl. Henson said.

The woman, whose name has not yet been released, was shot multiple times inside the salon, Cpl. Henson said.

Investigators said the suspect and the victim knew each other, but they have not released any details about their relationship or the motive for the shooting.

"This was not random," Cpl. Henson told The Atlanta Journal-Constitution. "He sought out this female victim."
Officer with the Paulding County Marshal’s Bureau and Cobb County deputies were all eating lunch at a nearby Subway when the shooting happened, Cpl. Henson said.

They were able to arrest Mr. McDaniel without incident when he walked out of the salon.
