3 teens arrested in deadly home invasion; 1 more suspect wanted

Posted: Updated:

Toledo Police have arrested two juveniles in connection to the homicide and home invasion at an apartment on Twin Oaks Drive Monday morning.

Cody Alan Ramsay, 17, was arrested Tuesday evening for two counts of aggravated robbery and one count of murder.

Toledo Police also arrested a 17-year-old female who was charged with aggravated robbery in connection with the incident.

A warrant was issued for Levi Jackson, 17, for two counts of aggravated robbery and one count of murder. He was arrested Wednesday.

A fourth suspect remains unknown.  Police describe the suspect as a dark-skinned black male, 20-25 years old with a large nose.  Officials say he may go by a nickname of "Snout."

Neighbors reported hearing gunshots shortly before midnight earlier this week.  Investigators say people busted into the apartment and started fighting with people inside.  Moments later, gunfire erupted. According to the Lucas County Coroner, Nathaniel Phillips was shot and killed. A second victim was shot in the leg and had head wounds from the fight.

The victim's family says 21-year-old Nathaniel Phillips was playing video games at a friend's apartment when he was shot and killed.

Investigators say the case does not appear to be gang related.

 "He was just visiting over there, you know, just visiting friends and playing video games," says Dominic Phillips, the victim's brother. "He was very athletic, very loving. Kind, smart, intelligent."

Ramsay is due in court on May 14th.

"I'm relieved that they're getting things moving along," says Phillips. "The detective told me not to worry. I have faith that he will get justice."
