She died around 11 a.m., 10 hours after police say Jamal Mansour shot her. In front of a judge on Tuesday, he said it was an accident.
The victim’s brother called 9-1-1 for help at 1:15 a.m. Tuesday. He told the operator his father just shot his sister in her room at the family’s home on Vine Court. This is how a portion of the 9-1-1 call went:
Operator: “Go ahead sir.”
Caller: “Yes, my sister has been shot. Please send an ambulance, please.”
Operator: “OK, where has she been shot at?”
Caller: “In her room.”
Operator: “OK. Did she shoot herself? Did you see who shot her?”
Caller: “No, my father shot her.”
During the 911 call, the brother said that his father has diabetes.
Police say the father shot his daughter twice in the head.
“We don’t have a solid motive other than an argument occurred between a father and his daughter,” said Lt. George Lichman with Rocky River Police.
Lichman says Tahani Mansour was one of six children. She lived at home with her parents and was the youngest child.
“We had the fire department respond and do an evaluation, it turns out (the father) was not under any medical care at the time of the incident and since he’s been in our jail,” Lichman said, when asked about his health.
The victim graduated from Rocky River High School, and went to Cleveland State. She had a doctor of pharmacy degree from Northeast Ohio Medical University.From AP:
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.From Fox 8:
Paramedics and police rushed to the home after the brother of Tahani Mansour reported that she had been shot twice while asleep in her bed.
When asked to explain why the father would shoot his own daughter, family members blamed a medical condition; they said Mansour is a diabetic.In other words, they gave no motive.
We are left to assume that's because they are covering for the fact that the Father was killing her because she violated their Muslim Honor and humiliated the Prophet.
