Written By Chicago News Report on Sunday, September 2, 2012 | 9/02/2012 04:57:00 PM

Early Sunday morning, 45-year-old Yolanda Holmes, the alleged owner of Nappy Headz salon, 4141 North Broadway, was shot and killed in an Uptown neighborhood apartment building, according to various news reports.

The apparent murder occurred around 5 a.m. inside the Wilson Yard Apartments at 1026 West Montrose Avenue; which is maintained by the Holsten Real Estate Development Corporation.

Although the motive for the shooting is unclear, several news sources said a man with facial lacerations was found outside the apartment were the shooting occurred.

Chicago News Report spoke with Marcel Rey, a stylist at Nappy Headz and he said Holmes was a "very fine person".

Yesterday, Holmes hosted a birthday party for Marcel and she appeared to be in good spirits.

CNR asked Marcel if Holmes ever complained of domestic issues involving a current or former boyfriend and he said, "no".

When we inquired if the salon was going to stay in business, Marcelle said, "we are just trying to get through this tragic event." 

While it's being reported that Yolanda Holmes was the owner of Nappy Headz, online business records indicate Holmes' sister, Yunea Holmes, is the sole proprietor.
