Around 3 p.m. on Sept. 4, Jason Iverson, 29, went to Stafford Park in Maple Heights after finding out his sister, 30-year-old Mercedes Iverson, and her spouse, 31-year-old Norbert “Trea” Carter, would be there, WEWS reported.
After arriving, Iverson tried to fight his sister and her husband, but the couple decided to go to their car to avoid him, officials said.
Carter was able to exit the car and he fled the parking lot, making his way to the bathroom at the park pavilion. Iverson followed him and allegedly shot and killed Carter in the bathroom, authorities said.
Iverson then left the scene, but police were able to capture him shortly afterwards, WEWS reported.
During the incident, a 13-year-old was grazed by a bullet. The teenager was treated and released from a local hospital, officials said.
Maple Heights Police Chief Todd Hansen noted investigators don’t believe the boy was targeted, according to WJW.
“This incident was specifically between the shooter and the victims; there was no randomness to the event," Hansen said. "The scene was rendered safe very quickly with the apprehension of the shooter.”
