A fourth person has been arrested for his alleged role in   an April shooting that left another man dead and woman wounded in Portland.

Jonathan Geisinger, 45, was charged with felony murder and taken into custody at around 8:30 p.m. on Friday night, according to Maj. Robert Martin, a spokesperson for the Portland Police Department.

Derald Coffin, 43, of West Bath was sitting in a parked vehicle on Woodford Street about 1 a.m. April 26 when he was approached by a group of people. An argument ensued, and Coffin and a 27-year-old woman were shot.

When officers arrived at the scene, they applied first aid to Coffin and the woman before they were taken to Maine Medical Center, where Coffin later succumbed to his injuries. The woman’s injuries weren’t life-threatening.

Three other people were charged in connection with the fatal shooting on June 10. Damion Butterfield, 22, of Saco was charged with murder and attempted murder, while 44-year-old Thomas MacDonald of Westbrook and 45-year-old Anthony Osbourne of Portland were charged with felony murder, according to Martin.

Geisinger is being held on $500,000 cash bail at the Cumberland County Jail in Portland.

The shooting remains under investigation, and no additional details were released.
