According to documents obtained by The Blast, DeVaughn Gibson, 23, Toshaun Banks, 21, and DelVaunte Johnson, 19, were all killed in the shooting, while two other people were injured but survived.

The relentless persistence of Cleveland Police Homicide detectives helped secure an indictment in this case,” the Cuyahoga County prosecutor said in a statement. “It is through their hard work that we can begin to seek justice for these victims. he continued.

Her boyfriend, Stacey Ervin Jr, posted a message to Biles on his IG that read, “The strongest people I’ve met have not been given an easier life. They’ve learned to create strength and happiness from dark places.”

Bile's brother faces life in prison if convicted on all charges.
