19 Investigates: Cleveland man charged with shooting 10-year-old girl took an AR-15 to school in 2022

A man from Cleveland who took an AR-15 rifle to a high school in 2022 has been accused on charges of shooting a 10-year-old girl last fall.

During the incident the girl’s mother was driving in Fairport Avenue in Cleveland’s Forest Hills neighborhood on October 14 and then a man named Jamar Hunter of age 20 years fired several shots into their vehicle and one of the bullet got struck into the 10-year-old’s leg as reported by the Cuyahoga County Prosecutor’s Office.

Some investigators found out that less than six months before shooting, the man was pleaded guilty to felony weapons charge in October 2023. At that time, the hunter was 18-years-old and he was caught with American Tactical AR-15 rifle at East Tech High School on East 55th Street in Cleveland.

During his sentencing, the Judge Shirley Strickland Saffold ordered Hunter to forfeit the rifle, pay a $250 fine and cover court costs, but it is unclear if he was sentenced to serve any time in prison.
