BEAR CREEK — Shyquaule Javon Fisher, 25, of Chapel Hill, suspected in taking part in the murder of a Bear Creek man in May, is still at large, according to law enforcement officials.

Fisher is one of three suspects charged in the murder of Emerson Batsche, who died of a gunshot wound to his chest at his home off Pittsboro-Goldston Road in Bear Creek on May 20.

Kenneth Joseph Bass Jr., 18, of Chapel Hill, was arrested early on June 8 in connection with the crime and charged with second-degree murder, aiding and abetting armed robbery and obstruction of justice. He is being held at the Chatham County Detention Center on a secured bond of $501,800.

A second man, Tyree Allsbrook, 19, of Apex was arrested on June 25 on charges of first degree murder, 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.

Allsbrook is also being held at the Chatham County Detention Center with no bond. Both men have a court date of July 20 where they will likely be assigned legal representation if they have not secured it on their own.

Fisher has a warrant out for his arrest for second-degree murder, robbery with a dangerous weapon and obstruction of justice. Fisher, who has ties to New Jersey, may have fled the area, according to law enforcement officials. A warrant for his arrest was issued nationwide.
