CLEVELAND, OH – After a fourth victim in the shooting spree of 41-year-old Mark Muniz, police have charged him with a fourth count of murder.

Last Friday, Muniz shot and killed three people, injuring two others, including an 8-year-old child. That child remains hospitalized from her injuries.

Words fall short in describing the barbaric actions committed by this individual,” said Prosecutor Michael C. O’Malley. “This heartless crime has impacted the community and my thoughts and prayers remain with the family and for the 8-year-old’s recovery.”

Today, Cuyahoga County Prosecutor Michael C. O’Malley announced that a Cuyahoga County grand jury has returned an indictment charging Martin Muniz, 41, for the murder of four people and severely injuring an 8-year-old female on Mack Court.

According to the Prosecutor’s Office, The Cleveland Division of Police responded to the scene, where they found five people shot. Three victims, a 16-year-old male, a 34-year-old female, and a 70-year-old male, were pronounced deceased on scene. Two victims, 48 and 8, were transported to a nearby hospital, where the 48-year-old male was pronounced deceased.

He is charged with four counts of aggravated murder, two counts of attempted murder, eight counts of murder, ten counts of felonious assault and weapon charge.
