TOLEDO, OH (Toledo News Now) -

Toledo Police arrested their fourth and final suspect in a west Toledo murder Friday.

Police arrested 19-year-old Antonio D. Taylor, aka "Snout," and charged him with murder and aggravated robbery with a deadly weapon in the case. Taylor was arraigned Friday morning in Toledo Municipal Court and is being held in the Lucas County Jail on $2 million bond.

Taylor is accused of killing Nathaniel Phillips, 21. Phillips was found dead at the Oakwood Apartments on Twin Oaks Drive Monday with several gunshot wounds.

According to police, witnesses said two men knocked on the door of the apartment and were let inside. Police say at that point one a suspect hit a person inside the apartment in the head, then one of the suspects opened fire. Police also say witnesses identified Taylor as the person who shot Phillips in the chest during the robbery.  

Michael Kohlhofer, Jr., 19, was shot in the leg but survived.

"I just can't believe that it happened," said Bridget Holland, Phillips' mother. "I mean, he is such a good person. I can't believe that somebody would do this."

"He didn't deserve nothing like this," said Katina Coleman, Phillips' stepmother. "He was a beautiful child, respectful, loving. We just want to know why and who, as soon as possible."

Nicole Collier is working on the story and will bring you more details tonight on WTOL 11 News at 6.
