SALON SHOOTER SENTENCED
Scott Evans Dekraai, 44, Huntington Beach, is awaiting sentencing for murdering eight people and attempting to murder a ninth at the Salon Meritage in 2011. It was the largest mass-murder in Orange County history.
Mr. Dekraai’s sentencing date will be determined pending completion of ongoing hearings. The defendant faces a minimum sentence of life in state prison without the possibility of parole, according to the Orange County District Attorney’s Office.
He pleaded guilty May 2 to eight felony counts of special circumstances murder for committing multiple murders and one felony count of attempted murder.
When the case moves to the penalty phase, a jury will consider the aggravating and mitigating circumstances of the evidence to determine the defendant’s penalty—death or life without the possibility of parole. An aggravating circumstance is any fact, condition, or event relating to the commission of a crime that increases the wrongfulness of the defendant’s conduct, nature of the offense, or harmful impact of the crime that supports the decision to impose the death penalty. Mitigating circumstances support not imposing the death penalty by providing any fact, condition, or event that reduces the defendant’s blameworthiness of the crime, even if it does not legally justify or excuse the crime.
On the morning of Oct. 12, 2011, Mr. Dekraai got into a verbal argument on the phone with his ex-wife, 48-year-old Michelle Marie Fournier, over a custody dispute regarding their 8-year-old son.
At approximately 1:20 p.m. that day, Dekraai entered Salon Meritage on Pacific Coast Highway in Seal Beach, where his ex-wife worked as a hair stylist. The defendant was wearing a bullet-proof vest under his clothing and armed himself with three firearms before walking into the salon with the intention of murdering his ex-wife and other people who may have been present. Approximately 15 people were inside at the time.
At 1:21 p.m., Mr. Dekraai walked through the salon and executed employees and customers at random by shooting them at close range in the head and chest. The firearms included a 9 MM Springfield, Smith & Wesson .44 Magnum, and a Heckler & Koch .45.
Dekraai shot several of the victims multiple times using two of the firearms and stopped to reload when his ammunition ran out. The shooting lasted about two minutes.
Other people inside the salon attempted to escape by hiding, locking themselves in private treatment rooms, or running outside. Dekraai shot eight people inside the salon.
Six of the eight victims inside the salon were pronounced dead at the scene. The two other victims were transported to Long Beach Memorial Medical Center in critical condition. One of those victims died that afternoon at the hospital. The eighth victim suffered serious injuries but survived.
The seven murdered victims from inside the salon include (in alphabetical order): Victoria Ann Buzzo, 54, Laguna Beach, salon employee; Laura Lee Elody, 46, Huntington Beach, salon employee; Randy Lee Fannin, 62, Murrieta, salon owner; Michele Daschbach Fast, 47, Seal Beach, salon client; Michelle Marie Fournier, 48, Los Alamitos, salon employee; Lucia Bernice Kondas, 65, Huntington Beach, salon client; and Christy Lynn Wilson, 47, Lakewood, salon employee.
Victim Harriet Stretz, then 73, of Los Alamitos, was critically injured but survived her injuries. She was a having her hair done by her daughter Elody, who was fatally shot.
Mr. Dekraai then walked out of the salon. As he approached his white Toyota Tundra pick-up truck to flee the scene, the defendant saw a dark sport utility vehicle parked nearby with a male seated in the driver’s seat. He approached the victim, who was alone in his car, and executed him by shooting him in the head through the closed front passenger side window. This victim was David Caouette, 64, Seal Beach.
An SBPD officer, who was nearby in the neighborhood, was the first to arrive at the scene in response to a 911 call from a person in the restaurant next door to the salon. Witnesses pointed the officer to the defendant’s vehicle as Mr. Dekraai attempted to drive away.
SBPD dispatch received information from the 911 caller at 1:25:36 p.m. that the defendant was driving away from the scene. At 1:26:07 p.m., only 30 seconds later, the defendant was stopped by SBPD in an emergency traffic stop.
Officers from SBPD, with their guns drawn, yelled for the defendant to exit his vehicle. Dekraai got out of his car, got down on his knees, placed his hands behind his head, and was arrested. At the time of his arrest, Dekraai was in possession of the three firearms and a significant amount of ammunition in his truck.
