Three Charged in Fatal IHOP Shooting

Cleveland Heights Police announced this afternoon that three women were charged with involuntary manslaughter in connection with a shooting at IHOP Saturday

Three suspects have been charged in a Cleveland Heights shooting that left one person dead early Saturday morning.

Sharon Moore, 24; Rachella Womack, 20; and Natosha Williams, 22, all of Cleveland, have been charged with involuntary manslaughter, inciting to violence, vandalism and robbery.

According to the three women were escorted out of the IHOP at 3452 Mayfield Road just before 3 a.m. because they were fighting verbally. As the security guard walked with them outside, the four began to fight physically. 

The security guard, Gary Williams, 41, of Mayfield Heights, fell to the ground and his gun discharged, hitting Nadia Williams, 25, of Cleveland, in the head.

She was transported to University Hospital and pronounced dead on arrival. 

Gary Williams works as a bailiff in Cleveland Municipal Court. 

Charges were filed Monday and all three women were taken to Cuyahoga County Jail, police said. Gary Williams has not been charged "at this point pending further investigation by Cleveland Heights detectives," the police department said today.

If a drunk driver is driving and is killed when he/she hits a utility pole, it's the pole's fault. Some people believe this. It's just the way they are.

Is it acceptable to act out in public? No! No offense to the comments that knows its possible to get in a public altercation, lets get serious that's where most altercations happen! That does not give any person that is supposed to protect to kill! Now as it bring we don't know what happen for real cause ere weren't there, we shouldn't judge the case, people or the security in the situation! I think all parties are responsible in some form or fashion & all should be charged to some degree including the security guard. I don't think she deserved to lose her life over an argument! God judges remember that!
