Mayfield Heights Man Involved -- But Uncharged -- In Fatal IHOP Shooting

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

A Mayfield Heights man was involved a Cleveland Heights shooting that left one person dead early Saturday morning.

However, at this point, he does not face any criminal charges.

However, three suspects -- 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.
