Cousins Arrested In Shooting Outside Local Nightclub

WACO (April 30, 2014) Alex Charles Forcey, 23, and Clyde Vonzell Forcey, 19, were in the McLennan County Jail Wednesday charged with aggravated assault with a deadly weapon in connection with what police described as a gun battle outside of a Waco nightclub that left one man injured.

The two men, who are cousins, were arrested Tuesday afternoon with the help of the U.S. Marshal’s Task Force, police Sgt. W. Patrick Swanton said.

They were held Wednesday in lieu of $10,000 bonds.

Marcus Dewaine Long, 31, was shot in the leg during a fight that erupted at around 2:25 a.m. on April 20 in the parking lot of Club Crush at 1014 North 25th St. in Waco.

Officers patrolling in the area heard the gunfire, and headed to the club where they found the injured man, several spent cartridges on the ground and several vehicles with bullet holes in them.

Long was taken by ambulance to Hillcrest Baptist Medical Center.

In early February, an off-duty Marlin police officer who was working as a security guard was involved in a shooting at the club.

Someone fired a gun inside the club during a disturbance and while the off-duty officer was dealing with that incident, another disturbance started outside of the club, police said.

When the off-duty officer, whose name was not released, went outside to check on the second disturbance, he saw a man firing at several other men, police said.

The off-duty officer fired at the gunman, who fled, along with the men at whom he had been shooting, police said.

Shortly after that, police were advised that a man had turned up in the emergency room of Providence Health Center with a gunshot wound to his leg, police said.
