A second man has been charged with murder in the Dec. 9 fatal shooting in the parking lot of a Macon Waffle House restaurant.
Members of the U.S. Marshals Southeast Fugitive Task Force arrested 20-year-old Devontae Quashawn Haywood on Wednesday morning at the Bradstone Circle house he lives at with his mother.
Haywood is accused in the death of 20-year-old Christopher Crowder, who was shot outside the Waffle House on Chambers Road about 4 a.m. Police believe Haywood pulled the trigger in the incident, said Macon police spokeswoman Jami Gaudet.
Task force members arrested Haywood without incident. He was sleeping when they arrived, said Deputy U.S. Marshal John Edgar.
Haywood appeared in Bibb County Magistrate Court on Wednesday afternoon without a lawyer.
Speaking softly, he told the judge, Im trying to get one.
When Magistrate Jane Reeves asked Haywood if he wanted a commitment hearing -- a proceeding in which police testify about why someone was arrested -- Haywood appeared unsure and didnt give a clear answer.
Reeves scheduled a commitment hearing for Jan. 16.
Because Haywood is charged with murder, his bond must be considered by a Superior Court judge.
Another man, 19-year-old Ashley DeMus Brown, turned himself into authorities on Dec. 11.
Brown, who also is charged with murder, is being held at the jail without bond, according to jail records.
Police have said Brown instigated the argument that led to the shooting and brought the weapons used.
Brown additionally is accused of shooting two people who were wounded during the incident.
His lawyer has said Brown didnt shoot anyone.
