ALBANY, GA (WALB) -

One of the two remaining men involved in the investigation of the murder of John Lewis, Jr. has been cleared of charges.

David Luke, 26, was wanted for felony murder, however after speaking with investigators, those charges have been dropped.

Jamarious Wright, 24 is wanted by police for felony murder in the same case.

An arrest was made on Wednesday, as detectives work to solve the murder of  John Lewis, Jr. These men have not been directly connected to the shooting death of Lewis, APD says.

Vontravious Jones, 23, was picked up by the APD Gang Unit around 2:15 p.m. 

Jones has been charged with felony murder, battery, theft by taking and three counts of cruelty to a child.

Adonis Demond "Booman" Warren, 24, is charged with Possession of a Firearm by a Convicted Felon.

Coery Deion Wright, 21,  faces the same charge. Both men were arrested Monday, March 6.

Tuesday, two other arrests were made. Eric "Booney" Davis, 20, and Markell Brown, 26, have both been arrested and charged with felony murder in the March 4 death of John Lewis, Jr., 21.

The Dougherty County district attorney Greg Edwards believes the shooting was gang related.

He said the murder is a product of a continuing feud between two gangs the Bloods and the Rattlers. 

"As the evidence is developed, we'll see who was a shooter or shooters," said Edwards.  "I do know that there was more than one person shooting.  So we will be ascertaining who did what as much as we can through forensic evidence and other testimony."

Jarod Hosley, 15, was arrested and charged with murder in the death of Lewis on Thursday, March 9.

Anyone with information on Wright's whereabouts is asked to contact the Albany Police Department or call CrimeSTOPPERS at (229) 436-TIPS.
