WHITE PLAINS, N.Y. -- A 21-year-old White Plains man was arraigned Friday in connection with last month's murder of a Peekskill man.

Aaron George of 396 Main St. was the second defendant charged in the April 17 ambush shooting of Dominique Hospie, 23, along North Kensico Avenue, accordiing to Acting Westchester County District Attorney James A. McCarty.

George was charged with second-degree murder, second-degree criminal possession of a weapon and tempering with physical evidence, all felonies, McCarty said.

George entered a not guilty plea and was returned to Westchester County Jail on $500,000 bail. His next court appearance is June 15.

George's co-defendant, Michael Djukic, 20, of 25 Lake St. in White Plains was arraigned on Wednesday as reported here.

Hospie, a 2010 graduate of Peekskill High School, was involved in a prior shooting for which he served prison time, as reported here by Daily Voice.

On Sunday April 17 at about 11:24 a.m. near 91 N. Kensico Ave. in White Plains, Djukic reportedly waited in a Chrysler Pacific as George exited the car, approached Hospie on the street and fired a handgun multiple times at Hospie, police said.

George ran back to the car where Djukic was waiting in the driver’s seat; the two drove off. Hospie was taken to Westchester Medical Center in Valhalla, suffering gunshot wounds to the hand and back. He later died undergoing surgery.
