On October 2, 2020, Gatheright and Jones shot and killed Shalaymiah Moore, 34, at Lakeshore Blvd. and E. 240th Street in Euclid.

Gatheright and Jones approached Moore’s car in an attempt to steal her and a male friend in the car.

Moore attempted to flee and was shot in the back. She was pronounced dead at a nearby hospital.

Gatheright was arrested on October 5, 2020, and Jones was arrested the following day.

“This senseless homicide is just another example of the wave of gun violence sweeping our county,” said Cuyahoga County District Attorney Michael O’Malley. “This victim was a wonderful mother, daughter and friend to many in our community.”

Cuyahoga County Court of Common Pleas Judge David Matia will sentence the two men on September 21.
