TOLEDO, Ohio — Editor's note: The above video originally aired Aug. 28, 2021.
A Toledo man has been indicted on murder charges following the death of an 11-year-old boy, who was shot and killed outside of his home in north Toledo in August 2021.
On Dec. 21, 20-year-old Tyler Williams was indicted for murder and multiple other charges, accused of shooting and killing Nathan Sumner Aug. 20.
Nathan and his 14-year old-brother, Miguel, were shot while playing basketball outside their home in the 300 block of Austin Street.
Both boys were taken to the hospital where Nathan was pronounced dead on Sunday, Aug. 22. Miguel was also taken to the hospital and is currently recovering at home.
Family and friends held a candlelight vigil shortly after the shooting to remember the young life tragically taken too soon.
The vigil was a small, private gathering of more than a dozen friends and family outside of the house where the shooting occurred. They released balloons into the air, played music, lit candles, and stood in silence in honor of Nathan.
Nathan's older sister, Jasmine Sumner, said Nathan smiled all of the time and loved doing outdoor activities like playing basketball and riding his bicycle.
"A great kid. He's such a great friend to everybody and such a good kid in school. There was just so much going for that one," said Jasmine.
"He was an innocent kid. He never did anything. We want them to be caught, that's it," said Naomi Miltz, the boys' aunt. "I just want the police and the city to really crack down on gun violence. This is unacceptable. It's just not right."
Nathan was a student at Spring Elementary, Toledo Public Schools confirmed.
