Man accused of fatally shooting daughter calls it accidental

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 63-year-old 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 with a .38-caliber revolver. Tahani Mansour was a licensed pharmacist.

Jamal Mansour told a judge Tuesday that it was an accident.

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

Mansour's wife and two other children also were there when the shooting occurred.

Crates says Jamal Mansour has no criminal history. He owns a gas station.

A court hearing is scheduled for Thursday.
