U.S. Marshal Pete Elliott said U.S. Marshals and Cleveland police reportedly arrested Ce’Matizea Andrews, 19 while hiding out in a home in the 3500 block of Randolph Road in Cleveland Heights.

Andrews is charged with murder in connection with the Wednesday shootout that killed 9-year-old Saniyah Nicholson. He is accused of being inside a car that fired the first shots during the shootout.

Three others were arrested on Thursday. A 17-year-old boy, who was the first to be arrested in the case, who was walking on Lee Road with a 16-year-old, is charged also charged with murder. Police are searching for the 16-year-old, investigators said.

Another 17-year-old boy is accused of being one of the shooters inside the car that fired the opening bullets and is in the Cuyahoga County Juvenile Detention Center.

Devontae Nettles,19, is charged with murder and was the alleged driver of the stolen Chevy Cruze used in the drive-by. Police later found the stolen car on East 83rd Street and Holton Avenue.

Cleveland Police Chief Calvin Williams said a sort of disagreement reportedly broke out between the two groups involved prior to the shooting. The chief declined to elaborate.

The shooting reportedly occurred about 7:30 p.m. Wednesday outside the DNA Level Boxing Club on Lee Road near Cloverside Avenue, shortly after Saniyah’s mother, Marshawnette Daniels, stopped to pick up her 14-year-old son from the gym.

While she was inside, a group in a car drove by the area and fired several gunshots at a group standing on the corner, police said. The other group returned fire.

A bullet ripped through the windshield of Daniels’ car and hit Saniyah in the forehead, killing her instantly, as her 20-year-old sister sat in the backseat.
