Other people are believed to be "directly" involved in Lyric's death and investigators are "following up as we speak on those other individuals," police said at a news conference Wednesday.

"We do believe that this was some continued violence or intimidation directed at someone else. We don't think this was random, we do believe someone else was targeted at that home," police said.

"This is a continuing investigation," Cleveland Police Chief Calvin Williams added. "We are by no means done."

Lyric's aunt, Corday Lawson, said she was "so happy" to learn of the arrest. She didn't expect it to take over one month, but she told ABC News, "I'm just grateful it didn't take longer."
