McLeod was arraigned on charges of one count of first-degree premeditated murder (juvenile defendant), one count of felonious assault, and two counts of felony firearm, and remanded to a youth home earlier this month.

According to Detroit Police Commander Michael McGinnis, there was an argument over a cell phone that may have been stolen, which led to the shooting of Nankervis near Homer and Mullane streets. It is unclear if the phone was actually stolen or who stole it.
