The co-owner of a Queens barbershop allegedly stabbed a teen to death using pair of scissors.

A Laurelton barbershop owner used scissors to fatally stab a 19-year-old during a fight over a pair of headphones, police said.

Carl Richardson, 19, came to the 227-14 Merrick Blvd. business about 2 p.m. Thursday to collect money from 34-year-old Cedric Simpson, the shop’s co-owner, who had purchased the headphones from the teen, cops said.

The two began arguing over the debt and Simpson stabbed Richardson three times with the scissors—twice in the chest and once in the neck, the NYPD said.

Richardson, a Springfield Gardens resident, was taken to Franklin Hospital, where he was pronounced dead, according to officials.

Simpson was taken into custody at the scene and charged with second-degree murder and criminal possession of a weapon, police said.
