A sixth person has been charged with murder in the Dec. 12 fatal shootout at Wings Cafe that resulted in three deaths.

Bibb County deputies are looking for 27-year-old Emmanuel McGhee of Macon. Warrants have been signed charging McGhee with three counts of murder and one count of violating Georgia's Street Gang Terrorism and Prevention Act, according to a news release.

Authorities have alleged the shootout, at the nightclub on Bloomfield Drive, involved two rival gangs -- the Blacc Team and the Crips.

Alleged Blacc Team members Kenyata Norreece Lester, 30; Markques Patterson, 30; Vertuice Wall Jr., 39; and Eric Watkins, 29, were indicted last month, each charged with murder in the deaths of Corey Hollingshed, 25; George Henley, 34; and Derrick Jackson, 38.

McGhee is accused of being a Blacc Team member, according to the sheriff's office.

Jaquez Terrance Foster, 24, an alleged Crips member, also was indicted on murder charges.

Authorities have said surveillance footage shows alleged Blacc Team members arriving, entering and fighting with alleged Crips members who already were at the club.

At some point, guns were drawn, and shots were fired from both sides.

Foster, Lester, Patterson, Wall and Watkins also are charged with aggravated assault, partly stemming from the shooting of Henley's girlfriend, 23-year-old Nastajah Taylor. Taylor was shot four times, but she survived.

Anyone with information about McGhee's whereabouts is asked to call the sheriff's office at 478-751-7500 or Macon Regional Crimestoppers at 877-68-CRIME.
