A trial for the third adult suspect, Karlos Chase Philpot,18, is scheduled to begin Oct. 18. Philpot was indicted in February for murder, two counts of aggravated robbery, four counts of felonious assault and improperly discharging a firearm into a habitation.
Angela Combs, 41, was shot about 9 p.m. in an apartment in the 3100 block of Wilbraham Road by armed suspects who came to the door apparently looking for payment of a debt, according to court documents. Combs was taken to Atrium Medical Center, where she died.
According to court documents, one of the 17-year-olds said he went to the residence armed with two other people to “get $60 that was owed to him for marijuana.”
The person who opened the door attempted to shut it and caught the arm of one of the 17-year-old’s in the door, it said.
“After the door hit (the teen’s arm) he stated he started pulling the trigger because it upset him,” according to the complaint signed by detective Ken Mynhier.
The resident who also was shot told police he was at home with Combs and other friends and family when there was a knock at the door. The man said they opened the door and saw three people with guns and masks and tried to close the door.
He said one of the three was able to put his hand through the door and fired. The resident said he recognized one of the suspects from his voice and hair.
