ROCKY RIVER, OH (WOIO) - Police records show that Jamal Mansour, the man who fatally shot and killed his daughter Tahani on Sept. 27, previously threatened to commit suicide over his daughter's trip to Las Vegas.

Police were called out to the Mansour home on Tuesday after reports that he had shot his daughter. Police arrived on the scene and transported Tahani to a local hospital, where she later died from a gunshot wound to the front of her head.

Tahani was a clinical pharmacist at University Hospitals Ahuja Medical Center, but left earlier this month. She was also a clinical instructor at the University of Findlay.

Jamal Mansour was arrested and charged with murder, domestic violence and felonious assault. A .38 caliber handgun was found on scene.

In a newly obtained report filed on Dec. 1, 2012, an anonymous person contacted police to report that Jamal had threatened to kill himself if Tahani didn't return from a work-related conference in Las Vegas by 7 a.m. the next day. According to the report, Jamal was furious with Tahani for going to the conference.

Police responded to Jamal's home on Vine Street for a welfare check and located Jamal and his other family members. Jamal denied that he made any claims to kill himself, but stated that he was very upset his daughter was in Las Vegas. Police were assured by Jamal's wife that he was not a harm to himself or their family.

Jamal Mansour is currently locked up while his current murder case remains under investigation. This week, a Rocky River Judge approved a motion for a Domestic Violence Temporary Protection Order keeping him away from his family, their work, school and home.
