    OH - Quintuple Cleveland Killing, 21 Nov 2014, *ARREST*

    http://www.chieftain.com/news/nation...-pregnant-girl

    A pregnant woman and her unborn child were killed along with three other people in a shooting at a Cleveland home that also injured the woman’s 9-year-old daughter but left the woman’s toddler son unharmed, police said Saturday.

    Sherita Johnson was 28 weeks pregnant when she was shot outside her home around 7:30 p.m. Friday, police said. A 17-year-old girl and two men, ages 19 and 60, were also killed, but the Cuyahoga County medical examiner didn’t immediately release their identities and authorities didn’t provide information about the victims’ relationships...

    The preliminary investigation showed that Johnson, 41, arrived home with her children and allowed her daughter to go inside for clothes, according to police. While inside the house, the girl found one or some of the people who had been shot. A male armed with a handgun then ran toward the girl and fired, grazing her chest, police said.

    Fox News said Cuyahoga County Medical Examiner’s Office identified one of the other victims as Lemon Bryant, 60.

    The stepfather of one of another victim, 17-year-old Shaylona Williams, told the Northeast Ohio Media Group she was training as a nurse. Derick Mayes told the group that his stepdaughter was visiting her boyfriend when the attack happened. The other victim has not been named, but is a male aged 19.

    CBS News reported that the 60-year-old was shot in the head as he sat with his back to the door and the teenage boy was also shot in the head. A source close to the case told the news network the teenage girl was shot in the head as she hid in the corner of a bedroom.

    Cleveland Police announced Monday there is now a reward of at least $25,000 through Crime Stoppers for information regarding the five people murdered on E. 92nd Street Friday evening.

    "Any crime that involves the death of somebody is very serious, but this crime, in particular, appeared very brutal - more so than I can remember in recent times," said Police spokesperson Sgt. Ali Pillow.

    I saw no report of a burglery so the only reason to kill most of the witnessess was rage,which leads me to think it is someone close and known to the victims.The mask was precautionary incase he was seen.The woman in the car and teenager walking in on the crime was a "wrong place at the wrong time" and not the intended target.I think the killer had no time to shoot the children in the car because he either did not see them or had no time to do so because he needed to flee the scene.Possibly could be an ex of one of the victims.Hopefully police have more info but not releasing to the public.I would look into relationships of the victims in the house.It takes something personal to execute a family.This is all speculation on my part.Prayers for the victims.

    Detectives at a dead end. Have a truck load of evidence to test and reward is $27,000. From the article:

    Police Chief Calvin Williams said homicide detectives are working with the FBI's Violent Crimes Task Force, and members of the U.S. Marshals are on stand-by to capture any suspect quickly.

    Tips can be submitted to Crime Stoppers by phone at 216-252-7463 or by texting TIP657 and your message to 274637.

    Information can also be submitted to the Cleveland police's homicide detective unit at 216-623-5464.

    Cleveland police say they have no suspect and no motive.

    Using the bomb squad as a command center, investigators combed through the crime scene again Wednesday. The medical examiner and Crime Scene Unit were working inside the home, while patrol officers and agents from the FBI's Violence Crimes Task Force walked to homes nearby.

    Police say their only witness is Johnson's 9-year-old daughter, who was also grazed by a bullet.

    CLEVELAND -- The mother of a 41-year-old pregnant woman who was shot to death in a quintuple homicide in November, along with three others, wants answers for her loved ones.

    Patricia Johnson's daughter, Sherita L. Johnson, her unborn baby boy and Sherita's son, 19-year-old Ja'rio Taylor were killed at a shooting that started inside a home in the 1400 block of East 92nd Street.

    After five months, Patricia is worried the quintuple homicide may have gone cold. 60-year-old Lemon Bryant and 17-year-old Shaylona Williams were also killed.

    During a press conference, Cleveland Police said their only witness at this time is a 9-year-old girl who survived the shooting. Patricia is now helping her granddaughter deal with witnessing her family gunned down. "She said she seen the guy jump from behind the couch she said she just ran... he shot her," Johnson told Channel 3's Hilary Golston.

    The suspect was arrested Tuesday morning on the city's West side without incident and is in the midst of being interviewed by police and county prosecutors, according to officials. Police said they do not know the man's relationship to the victims.

    Police Chief Calvin Williams thanked the community in a press conference Wednesday evening, citing the "dozens of tips" the police department received helped bring closure to the family impacted by the homicide.

    "Their help was definitely invaluable in this case," Williams said. "Our community stepped forward and were instrumental."

    ________________


    Finally someone has been arrested for this heinous crime. They have not released the name yet. It is good to see that people were willing to step up and tell what they knew, in order to help solve this case.

    Cuyahoga County Prosecutor Timothy McGinty will seek the death penalty in the case of James Sparks-Henderson, the man charged in a 2014 shooting at an East Side Cleveland home that killed five people.

    McGinty refiled a 46-count indictment against Sparks-Henderson Thursday, this time including death penalty specifications on felony aggravated murder charges.
