Police continue to look for another person of interest in this case. Police are searching for Allen Y. Holloway III, 19, whose last known address was in East St. Louis. Holloway is a black male, 5-feet, 6-inches tall and weighs 125 pounds. He has black hair and brown eyes.
Anyone with knowledge of Holloway's whereabouts is asked to contact the Cahokia Police Department at 337-9505.
An assailant in a BMW pulled up in front of a home at 19 St. Ambrose Drive and opened fire on four young men sitting on a porch, killing Nicholson, according to a neighbor who said he saw the shooting.
Clifford Woldanski, of 20 St. Ambrose, has said he was in his garage and heard three shots. "I came running out and he shot five more shots and they all scattered," Woldanski said. He said the driver then jumped into the BMW and drove away.
After being shot, Nicholson was taken to a nearby hospital, where he was pronounced dead.
The Major Case Squad concluded its investigation on Thursday night and turned the case over to the Cahokia Police Department.
