Alleged Macon gang member arrested in deadly Wings Cafe shootout

Another alleged member of the Blacc Team street gang is in jail on charges related to a deadly shootout at Wings Cafe that killed three men in December.

At about 4:15 p.m. Wednesday, the U.S. Marshals Southeast Regional Fugitive Task Force arrested 29-year-old Derek Motez Taylor of Macon, in Clayton County, according to a news release from the Bibb County Sheriff's Office.

Clayton deputies helped get Taylor into custody without incident.

He is charged with six counts of aggravated assault and a dozen counts of violations to the street gang terrorism and prevention act and violating his probation.

Last month, a 72-count indictment added Taylor and four others to the list of people charged in the deadly bar fight at 2822 Bloomfield Drive.

The indictment accuses Taylor, 26-year-old Shavious Antwan Balkcom and 24-year-old Master John Henry Brown of punching 24-year-old Jaquez Terrance Foster and tossing a lit cigarette, chairs and glass bottles at people in the club.

Foster and six others face murder charges in the shooting that authorities have said began with the flick of a cigar or cigarette.

Authorities are still looking for 30-year-old Tavarus Antwone Coney, who is charged with murder, aggravated assault and gun and gang charges, according to a news release.

Master John Henry Brown, 24, and Shavious Antwan Balkcom, 26, are also wanted on charges of aggravated assault and gang charges, according to the release.

Anyone with information is urged to call deputies at 478-751-7500 or Macon Regional Crimestoppers at 877-68-CRIME.
