Ohioan says his adult daughter’s shooting death was accident


ROCKY RIVER, Ohio (AP) — A suburban Cleveland man has been charged with murder in the fatal shooting of his adult daughter at the family’s home.

Rocky River police say Jamal Mansour shot 27-year-old Tahani Mansour several times in the head during an argument early Tuesday.

Police Lt. Bill Crates says detectives are trying to determine why the man shot his daughter, a licensed pharmacist, with a .38-caliber revolver.

Jamal Mansour told a judge Tuesday it was an accident.

Court records don’t indicate whether he has an attorney. He’s being held on a $1.5 million bond.

The 63-year-old father and gas station owner was arrested at the home. Mansour’s wife and two other children also were there when the shooting occurred.

Crates says Jamal Mansour has no criminal history.

A court hearing is scheduled Thursday.
