Police on Monday announced charges against two other men in the same shooting.

Rasean Stokes, 18, is charged with murder and aggravated discharge of a firearm, according to police and county records.

Javontae Gray, 22, is charged with aggravated discharge of a firearm, reckless discharge, obstructing justice and obstructing a police officer.

The men were allegedly driving toward each other and shooting when Frazier was hit in the head by gunfire. He was dropped off at a hospital shortly after but died two days later.

Gavin, who is not in custody, has an active warrant for $2,000,000 in Will County, police said.
