A Cuyahoga County grand jury has indicted a man suspected in the shooting at Beachwood Place on St. Patrick's Day. Jamallee McKinley Jr., 24, of Euclid, was indicted for the following offenses:

  • Two counts of aggravated robbery 
  • Two counts of felonious assault
  • One count of having weapons under disability
  • One count of carrying concealed weapons 
  • One count of improperly handling firearms in a motor vehicle
  • One count of possessing criminal tools

On March 17, police responded to the mall with guns drawn after reports of shots fired near Saks Fifth Avenue. The mall was put on lockdown while police assessed the situation and tried to find the shooter.

One man was taken to the hospital with a gunshot wound to the leg. Before going to the hospital, Beachwood police said an officer performed emergency measures that may have been life-saving.

At the time, police said the shooter apparently knew and intentionally shot the victim, and that the shooting was the result of an altercation.

A second shooting incident happened around the same time in a different area of the mall. Authorities said the second incident involved a man entering the mall and accidentally discharging a gun. He was charged with inducing panic, a fourth-degree felony. Police said the two incidents were unrelated.
