In Texas, a woman allegedly shot a nail salon owner after realizing the price of her manicure and pedicure.

Joana Vara, 21, was arrested and charged with aggravated assault with a deadly weapon last Thursday, according to Harris County Jail records. Her court appearance was set on Monday, and her bond was set at $60,000. It is unknown whether she has legal counsel.

Ms Vara confessed to the allegation at the local Sherriff’s Office, according to a report by local news channel KPRC.

On May 29, the accused and her sister Quetzali Vara, 20, went to Katy Nails in Houston for a manicure and pedicure.

Once they were given the price, a violent argument ensued because the sisters “were displeased with the price of the services,” according to the Harris County Sheriff’s Office.

Joana Vara paid and left the salon, leaving her younger sister to deal with the salon owner. Joana Vara tried to reenter the shop to confront the male owner, who barred her access. According to a police statement, Joana Vara then pulled a gun and shot the owner before fleeing the scene with her sister.

According to the statement, Ms Vara had allegedly left her cellphone at the nail salon. The victim was taken to Memorial Hermann Texas Medical Center in critical but stable condition.
