Two more suspects have been charged in the hair salon robbery that was foiled by an off-duty New York City police officer getting her hair done.

Steven McLeod was arraigned Tuesday on charges he supplied the handgun used in the October robbery.

Also charged was Nefrititi Earl who prosecutors say posed as a customer of the Brooklyn salon. They say she was buzzed through the locked door of Sabine's Hallway so Winston Cox could enter behind her.

Prosecutors say Cox opened fire after off-duty Officer Feris Jones drew her gun and identified herself as a police officer. He was charged previously.

All three defendants have pleaded not guilty to the indictment charging them with attempted murder, robbery, aggravated assault and weapon possession.

Feris was promoted to detective for her bravery.
