Hudson County prosecutors tell The Jersey Journal that the shooting occurred around 5 p.m. Wednesday at Solo Nails in West New York. The names of the victim and the shooter were not immediately disclosed.

The salon's owner was pistol-whipped during the attack, but details on that person's injuries were not disclosed.
