Nakeisha Lyles was a security guard at the 221 building.


Lyles was a witness to the shooting of Pooh Blanchard by D'Angelo Barksdale. She was questioned by homicide detective Frank Barlow and identified Barksdale from a photo array. When she came to testify in the trial she claimed that she was mistaken and had misidentified D'Angelo and saw the real perpetrator a week later. It was later revealed that she was paid to change her story by the Barksdale Organization.[1]

She is shot and killed after they realize they are being investigated to prevent her testifying about the bribery. Wee-Bey Brice later confesses to her murder.[2]


Nakeisha Lyles is a recurring character in the first season. She is played by guest star Ingrid Cornell and debuts in "The Target".
