Macon man dead after gunfire erupts outside Warner Robins nightclub

A 38-year-old man was killed when gunfire erupted outside a Warner Robins nightclub early Saturday.

The victim was Tamarco Santel Head of Macon, according to a Warner Robins police news release.

Warner Robins police officers were on their way to to help clear the parking lot of Club Boss at 532 N. Davis Drive when shots were fired shortly after 2 a.m. in the club’s breezeway area, the release said.

Head was struck by gunfire and was pronounced dead at the scene, the release said.

“We are working diligently on identifying a suspect,” the release said.

Multiple crime scene markers dotted the breezeway Saturday afternoon in front of the club that’s in the middle of the Northgate Plaza shopping strip as crime scene investigators continued to work the scene.

The crime scene stretched across Northgate Plaza and included Greater Works Global Worship Center at the edge of an adjacent shopping strip.

Yellow crime scene markers No. 81 and No. 82 were in the parking lot directly in front of the church.

Head’s death marks the second homicide in Warner Robins this year.

The city’s first homicide victim was 43-year-old Melando Cortez Moore, who was shot May 6 at Tanglewood Apartments at 1005 Elberta Road where he lived.

Moore was found unresponsive lying next to a car in the parking lot just before midnight and taken to the Medical Center, Navicient Health. He died May 9 at the hospital.

Terrence Dontae Jones, 21, is charged with felony murder, aggravated assault and possession of a firearm by a convicted felon in the killing of Moore.
