3 women charged in Cleveland Heights IHOP shooting that killed Nadia Williams

CLEVELAND HEIGHTS, Ohio - Three women have been charged with involuntary manslaughter in the deadly shooting at the Cleveland Heights International House of Pancakes, police say.

Nadia Williams, 25, was shot during a scuffle just before 3 a.m. on Saturday at the Mayfield Road location. Cleveland Heights police said security guard Gary Williams was escorting four women out of the restaurant when the group got into a fight. That's when the guard fell and his gun discharged.

Williams was shot in the head just outside IHOP and was taken to University Hospital, where she was pronounced dead.

Sharon Moore, 24; Rachella Womack, 20, and Natosha Williams, 22, were charged with involuntary manslaughter, inciting to violence, vandalism and robbery. The women were taken to the Cuyahoga County Jail.

The security guard, 41-year-old Gary Williams, has been a bailiff with the Cleveland Municipal Court since Oct. 20, 1997. Bailiffs are allowed to carry guns, pepper spray and other items necessary for safety. Gary Williams was in police custody, but was released, his supervisor said. He has not been charged.
