A sixth murder suspect is behind bars in the Dec. 12 fatal shootout at Wings Cafe that killed three people
Bibb County deputies booked 27-year-old Emmanuel McGhee of Moreland Avenue into the Bibb County Law Enforcement Center after his arrest at 7:30 a.m. Sunday, according to jail records.
Monday afternoon, he asked for a commitment hearing during his first appearance in Bibb Magistrate Court. Magistrate Barbara Harris set the hearing for May 4.
Warrants accused McGhee of 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 shoot-out, 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 and survived.
