PLYMOUTH (WWJ) - A Plymouth man is facing possible life in prison after an argument turned deadly at a west side Detroit barbershop.

Jamar Levon Woodmore, 29, has been arraigned on charges of first degree murder, carrying a concealed weapon, felon in possession of a firearm and felony firearm in connection with the death of 27-year-old Leon Webb a week ago.

According to Wayne County Prosecutor Kym Worthy, Woodmore and Webb -- a Detroit resident, --were both working the barbershop, located in the 13300 block of W. Seven Mile Rd., when they got into a verbal argument that turned into a fist fight the afternoon of Tuesday, July 26.

Prosecutors alleged that after the fight Woodmore when to his car, retrieved a handgun, reentered the shop and fatally shot Webb. 

Woodmore fled following the shooting, prosecutors said, but turned himself in to Detroit police over the weekend. 

According to Michigan Department of Corrections records, Woodmore served prison time for probation violation on a 2013 conviction in Oakland County for assaulting/obstructing police and/or resisting arrest. His criminal history also includes a plea on a gun charge in Wayne County in 2016. 

At a video arraignment Tuesday in 36th District Court, Woodmore was ordered held without bond in the Wayne County Jail. He will be back in court for a probable cause conference on July 17.
