CLEVELAND, Ohio (WOIO) - The man accused of fatally shooting four family members and injuring his eight-year-old niece at a home in Cleveland’s Brooklyn Centre neighborhood appeared in Cleveland Municipal Court Tuesday morning.
Cleveland police said Martin Muniz, 41, shot the victims Jan. 13 at a home in the 3700 block of Mack Ct. around 7:30 p.m. Police added all the victims were shot in the head.
Angelic Gonzalez, 34, her father, Miguel Gonzalez, 69, and her son, Jayden Baez, 16, were pronounced dead at the scene.
A fourth shooting victim, Angelic’s husband, Anthony Boothe, 48, died at MetroHealth Medical Center.
Angelic and Boothe’s eight-year-old daughter, Eyana, was also shot and taken to MetroHealth Medical Center in critical condition.
Police confirmed Angelic, Miguel and Jayden were Muniz’s sister, father and nephew.
Anthony Boothe was his brother-in-law and Eyana his niece.
According to police, Muniz flagged down officers around 7:50 p.m. Friday and told them about the shooting and where the victims were located.
“We believe preliminarily that it’s domestic related,” Cleveland Police Chief Wayne Drummond said at the scene. “Our hearts go out to the family, the relatives and so forth and it’s currently under investigation.”
Muniz is now being held on a $5 million bond at the Cuyahoga County Justice Center.
