Ohio Armed Citizen Stops Rampaging Ex-Boyfriend

posted on September 26, 2015

A Cleveland, Ohio, woman was in her apartment with a male guest around 10 p.m. Wednesday when her ex-boyfriend, 28-year-old Cedric Grier, banged on the door. After the resident refused to let him in, Grier reportedly kicked in the door and began destroying the resident’s property before grabbing the woman and strangling her until she lost consciousness. With the woman passed out, Grier turned his anger on the male guest, charging at him and hitting him. At this point, the man was able to retrieve his handgun and fire at Grier, hitting him in the chest. 

When police arrived, they found Grier dead of a single gunshot wound at the top of a stairway. The incident remains under investigation, but police say both victims are cooperating and no arrests have been made.
