CLEVELAND (AP) — Surveillance video shows that a suburban Cleveland man accused of fatally shooting his adult daughter in the head at home loaded a revolver at the gas station he owns the day before the shooting.

Sixty-four-year-old Jamal Mansour, of Rocky River, has pleaded not guilty to aggravated murder and other charges in the September shooting of 27-year-old Tahani Mansour.

Jamal Mansour told a judge after his arrest that it was an accident, but prosecutors allege he planned the killing.

Cleveland.com reports prosecutors point to the gas station video of Mansour loading a firearm as evidence that he had a “calculated plan.” Police say Mansour rarely took the weapon home.

Court records indicate Mansour said he shot his daughter “out of anger.” Authorities haven’t released further details about a potential motive.
