ROCKY RIVER, OHIO (WOIO) – A 63-year-old father is facing murder, felonious assault, and domestic violence charges after Rocky River police say he shot his daughter twice.

Tahani Mansour was rushed to Fairview Hospital Tuesday morning. 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. The university sent out a tweet mourning her death, saying counselors would be available on campus.

This is the first homicide in Rocky River in two years.

Before that, police say they hadn’t seen a homicide for 16 or 17 years. Neighbors were left stunned by what they heard happened.

Dr. Joan Horvath says the family lived on the street for years but kept to themselves. Other neighbors said the same thing.

“I understand that they have children. I have never seen the children. I would not recognize them. I’ve seen the father cutting the grass and occasionally the mother puttering with flowers, but I have never seen the children,” said Horvath. “The thought to me, of a father shooting a daughter, who is normally the apple of a father’s eye, is so heartbreaking. What drove him to that. What are the dynamics of that family that made him feel that the only way to stop something is to shoot his daughter.”

Jamal Mansour is being held at the Rocky River jail. He will be back in court on Thursday.


Jamal T. Mansour, 63, faces murder, felonious assault and domestic violence charges.

He waived his right for a preliminary hearing in court on Thursday. His $1.3 million bond was also amended to $4.5 million.

The prosecutor in court Thursday asked for a higher bond, saying Mansour in essence “assassinated his daughter.” He added that he had fears Mansour would hurt other family members or flee the country.

Mansour was born in Jordan but is a naturalized U.S. citizen.

He and his brother own grocery stores and gas stations in the area.

The night of the incident, police rushed to his 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.

As noted above:

“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 family is lying and covering up the honor killing.

  1. peace of religion huh!!! those who believe this crap are in for a real doozieof a life; choices and consequences

  2. sharia is alive and well in America. How sad. And we can’t seem to knock any sense into those brain dead liberals who think bringing this to our country is a good thing. How sad.

  3. yes because diabetes turns normal people into killers
    nice try muzzies

  4. Ah, Islam. The religion of peace. Can’t you just feel the love?

  5. A few years ago, here in Florida we had an islamic lady commit suicide by repeatedly banging her head on a coffee table. Thats what her family said and the Tampa police concurred. Strange how these things happen to the most honorable muslims.Oh, and lets not forget that islamic TV station that was to demonstrate how peaceful islam is to the American people till the owner beheaded his wife at the station.

  6. Muslim honor killing.

    Nothing to do with diabetes.

    Everything to do with the criminal cult of Islam

  7. Taqiyya – muslims can lie to suit the situation. No excuse. Liar and murderer.

  8. Diabetes…. Hmmm…. Yeah, that sounds like the perfect defense, or better yet, hey, maybe she actually committed suicide–shot herself in the head TWICE as she was SLEEPING!!!!! DUMBASS INBREEDS! And just think, he’s probably already registered to vote–FOR HILLARY!!!!! Can anybody say, BRING BACK CAPITAL PUNISHMENT for ALL “honor” killings!!!!!

If sharia law continues spreading, you'll have less and less freedom of speech - so speak while you can!
