A 53-year-old Ohio woman was fatally shot by a man who ran a red light and struck her vehicle in Cleveland, Ohio, Saturday, according to multiple reports.
Deborah Pearl, a mother and employee of a Cleveland-area Harley Davidson diner, was reportedly shot by Matthew Ryan Desha, a 29-year-old man toting a high-powered assault rifle, who police say killed her after hitting her with his jeep.
Shortly after 7:20 a.m., Pearl was headed to work when Desha reportedly ran a red light at an intersection and hit her car, flipping his vehicle multiple times in the process. Afterward, Pearl is said to have stepped out of her car to assess the damage, at which time he grabbed his high-powered assault rifle and shot at her at least 12 times, reports say.
According to the New York Daily News, she could be heard screaming on 911 call tapes. Witness testimony revealed that she had her hands up in the air as the man approached her before killing her.
“I can’t get her screams out of my head,” the unnamed witness was quoted as saying.
Pearl leaves behind three children, along with grandchildren and a longtime boyfriend.
“Word’s can’t explain what we’re going through,” Pearl’s son Derryo Pearl told Cleveland.com. “This is the roughest patch a human being can go through. I’ve gone through tough times before, but it wasn’t like this.”
Desha was arrested near the scene and was charged with her murder Monday. While no official motive has been released, the implications of the crime are hard to ignore.
Desha had been arrested just weeks before for carrying a concealed weapon. Before that, he had been arrested on the same charge in May, along with carrying drug paraphernalia, Cleveland 19 News reporter Denise Zarrella tweeted. According to reports, he was trained by the military and suffered from PTSD.
