$3M bond for man charged in Cleveland factory shooting

CLEVELAND — A judge has set bond at $3 million for a man accused of gunning down two people at an Ohio manufacturing plant.

Wearing handcuffs and assisted by a translator, 50-year-old Pedro Rodriguez appeared in Cleveland Municipal Court Monday. He's charged with two counts of aggravated murder in Friday's shooting at ParkOhio Products Inc. in Cleveland.

Rodriguez was represented by a public defender and entered no plea. He's to return to court on Nov. 2.

Police say Rodriguez killed 49-year-old plant worker Graciela Morales outside, then used the woman's employee ID card to get inside the building and fatally shoot another worker, Eduardo Pupo.

Authorities say Morales had filed a stalking report against Rodriguez in July but decided not to press charges.
