Brooks is the former pastor of City of Refuge International Ministries, 1023 N. Utica Ave., and the current owner of the Hands of Glory restaurant, 2616 N. Cincinnati Ave.
Cooper, 27, was apprehended within hours of the shooting but initially was arrested on complaints stemming from a separate crime.
Complaints related to the attack on Brooks were added Monday.
Nelson, 21, and Markedrik Wilson, 26, were arrested within 24 hours of the shooting on armed robbery and other felony complaints.
All of the men have lengthy criminal histories, records show.
