CLEVELAND -- Fourth suspect arrested in the homicide of Elissa Hereford.  

Wednesday afternoon around 1 p.m., Jimeel Germany surrendered to Cleveland Homicide Detectives at the Justice Center.  An aggravated murder warrant had been issued for his arrest.

Germany is being held at the Division's Central Prison awaiting charges.

Earlier Wednesday, two more suspects appeared in court in connection with the homicide investigation of Elissa Hereford. Both pleaded not guilty and are being held on $1 million bond.

The two, Devon Mittman and Brennon Isom, were arrested and charged with aggravated murder.

Mittman, 19, was arrested by Cleveland Police Officers on March 19 at Cleveland Hopkins International Airport without incident.

Isom, 19, was arrested by Cleveland Police detectives and agents of the U.S. Marshals Service Northern Ohio Violent Fugitive Task Force on March 19 in the 2300 block of E. 93rd Street.

The two were accused of being involved in a deadly gun battle on the city's east side where Elissa Hereford, 44, was caught in the crossfire of the shooting on E. 95th Street at 12:50 a.m. March 14.

Police say that three men were exchanging gunfire in the 2200 block of East 95th Street when Hereford looked out her second floor window and was shot in the left thigh.

Paramedics took Hereford to MetroHealth Medical Center, where she died of blood loss, Cuyahoga County Medical Examiner Thomas Gilson said. The bullet had struck a major blood vessel.

Already arrested and charged on March 14 was Daymond Haywood, 18, and police say they are looking for a fourth man as well.
