A jury reached a verdict Tuesday afternoon in the trial for Rachella Womack, 20. Womack was found guilty of involuntary manslaughter for her involvement in the shooting death of her friend at an IHOP.

Womack, Sharon Moore, 24, and the victim, 25-year-old Nadia Williams, all of Cleveland, created a disturbance inside the International House of Pancakes located at 3452 Mayfield Road in Cleveland Heights on March 30, 2013.

The suspects were subsequently asked to leave the premises.

While leaving the IHOP,  the women became confrontational with the security guard who was escorting them through the exit doors.

As they reached the final exit door, a physical confrontation ensued and the security guard’s weapon discharged, killing Williams.

The second suspect, Moore, has already pled guilty and will be sentenced Nov. 7.
