BEAR CREEK — The Chatham County Sheriff’s Office has announced a second arrest in the May 20 killing of a Bear Creek man.

Tyree Allsbrook, 19, whose residence is listed as 164 Alston Rd. in Apex, which is located in Chatham County, was arrested Thursday and charged with felony first degree murder in connection with the murder of Emerson Batsche, 20, of Bear Creek.

Allsbrook faces multiple felony charges in addition to first degree murder, including robbery with a dangerous weapon, conspiracy to sell and deliver a schedule VI drug, possession with intent to sell and deliver a schedule VI drug and possession of a firearm with a defaced serial number. Schedule VI drugs include marijuana and marijuana derivatives.

Batsche died as the result of a gunshot wound to the chest while at his residence off Pittsboro-Goldston Road in Bear Creek that occurred in the early-morning hours of May 20. On June 8, the Chatham County Sheriff’s Office issued second-degree murder arrest warrants for Kenneth Joseph Bass Jr., 18, and Shyquaule Javon Fisher, 25 in the connection to the case. Bass was soon apprehended by the Orange County Sheriff’s Office, but Fisher remains at large.

Allsbrook is being held at the Chatham County Detention Center with no bond.
