Two more suspects were charged with felony murder in the investigation of a Nov. 28 fatal shooting in Buford.

Michael R. Connor, 19, of Lawrenceville and Alexander Scott, 16, of Doraville were both charged with felony murder, criminal attempt to purchase marijuana and possession of a firearm during the commission of a felony.

Connor was also charged with aggravated assault. He was arrested on Thursday, and Scott was arrested on Friday.

Blake Schulte, 20, of Buford, was killed in the shooting near the Hall-Gwinnett county line, and Scott was injured, according to the Gwinnett County Police Department.

Tyler Schulte, 20, of Buford, was charged in January with murder, armed robbery, aggravated assault and possession of a controlled substance. He is the twin brother of Blake Schulte.

Police responded to reports of gunshots in the area of Express Lane in the Duncan Preserve subdivision off Sardis Church Road just after 4 a.m. Nov. 28.

Scott was discovered lying beneath a tree in front of the neighborhood clubhouse with a gunshot wound. He was treated for non-life-threatening injuries at Gwinnett Medical Center in Lawrenceville.

Blake Schulte was found dead in a silver Honda about three hours later. The Honda had traveled away from the scene of the shooting down a gravel utility road underneath power lines that run near the subdivision. The car only traveled between 200 and 300 yards.
