Suspect in Friday stabbing arrested

Two police officers escorted Alfred Lee Gary Jr., who is accused of attempted murder, from the Detective Bureau downtown into an unmarked police car Thursday at 2:15 p.m., walking their catch in front of news cameras.

From there, police drove Gary to the Bibb County Law Enforcement Center, where the 5-foot-7-inch, 28 year-old male is being held in relation to a stabbing.

Gary and Willie James Rogers, 32, are accused of stabbing 21-year-old Christopher Wyne in the upper back and torso at 10:30 p.m. July 10 in the 5700 block of Satterfield Drive. Police have not caught Rogers yet. A Macon Regional CrimeStoppers tip led to Gary’s apprehension, according to Lt. Carl Fletcher with the Macon police.

One clue detectives are looking into, in what is still an ongoing investigation, is a marijuana filled bookbag that was abandoned in the yard near the scene of the crime, Fletcher said.

The stabbing was related to a shooting in the same vicinity Friday night in which 33-year-old Nolan Flint of Macon was shot in the buttocks, according to police.

Police are still “looking into the person who fired the gun,” Fletcher said.

Flint told police the shooting was prompted by a fight at Village Green Park on July 9 involving several members of the Crips gang, according to a Macon police report.

Anyone with information about the incident, including Rogers’ whereabouts, is asked to call police at 751-7500 or Macon Regional CrimeStoppers at (877)68-CRIME.
