CLEVELAND, OH (WOIO) -

22 year old Natosha Williams will never forget the Saturday night she saw her 25 year old sister Nadia Willaims shot in the head by an IHOP security guard's handgun.

"Did you, Ray or Sharon cause your sister's death," asked 19 Action News reporter Scott Taylor.

"No. Not at all," responded Natosha.

Natosha won't talk about the details of the shooting but her girlfriend 24 year old Sharon Moore and Nadia's fiance 20 year old Rachella Womack are now charged with involuntary manslaughter.

Initial charges against Natosha have been dropped.

Investigators say one of the four women jumped on the back of IHOP security guard Gary Williams during an altercation. He had his gun out and it went off killing Nadia.

Tosha's only comfort now is the sound of Nadia's voice on her iphone.

"I take the recording of that day and I listen to her voice and I try not to cry cause I really miss my big sister," said Natosha. 

Nadia leaves three children behind who are now asking a lot of questions.

"Having to see them cry. They come to me and say they miss their mother and they sleep with her clothes.  I don't know what to tell a kid.  I don't really now what to tell them," added Natosha.

 Gary Williams, the I-Hop Security Guard, is not facing any charges in the shooting.
