PORTLAND, Maine (AP) — A fourth person has been charged in connection with a shooting in Portland in April that left a man dead and a woman injured, police said Saturday.

Jonathan Geisinger, 44, was arrested in South Portland on Friday on a charge of felony murder in connection with the April 26 shooting of Derald Coffin, police said in a statement.

Coffin, 43, was in a vehicle parked on Woodford Street when just after 1 a.m. he was approached by a group of people and he and other other victim were shot. Coffin was taken to the hospital where he died. The other victim’s injuries were not life-threatening.

Police did not disclose a possible motive.

The other three suspects were arrested earlier this month.

Police went to a South Portland home at about 5:30 p.m. Friday where they believed Geisinger was located. Officers surrounded the home and the suspect was taken into custody at about 8:30 p.m.

He is being held on $500,000 bail. It was not clear if he had retained an attorney.

The investigation is ongoing, police said.
