Two days later, police charged 41-year-old John Tabler with second-degree murder in George-Raweater’s death.

Investigators identified a second man believed to be involved in the incident, and carried out an arrest at a home along Memorial Drive on Wednesday.

On Thursday, police said Martin Wallace Yuen was charged with manslaughter in George-Raweater’s death, and is set to appear in court on May 6.

Police said George-Raweater knew both Yuen and Tabler, and it’s believed he was shot as the result of a “personal dispute.”

“Our investigations do not stop once a suspect is charged,” Staff Sgt. Martin Schiavetta said.

“In each case, we continue to review the evidence and if it is believed anyone else was involved in the commission of the homicide, no matter how small their involvement is, we will lay additional charges.”
