Two additional suspects have been charged in what police are calling the gang-related "assassination" of a 20-year-old Salisbury man on East Road.

14:53 |

Cassone Arnaze Taylor, 19, and Darell Spates, a 22-year-old John Street resident, have been charged with murder, conspiracy to commit murder, assault and handgun violations in connection with the murder of Arnold G. Fagans Jr., who was shot multiple times in the West Road Apartments parking lot on Jan. 12.
They continue to be held without bond at the Wicomico County Detention Center following a District Court bail review hearing Monday.
Taylor and Spates, aka "Redz" and "Ciggs," are the most recent suspects charged in Fagans' murder. Stewart Desbagne, 17, and Kaleb R. Phillips, 20, were taken into custody Jan. 14 and are facing similar charges.
Desbagne has been charged as an adult.
Taylor and Spates were implicated in the homicide, the first murder in the county this year, after investigators listened to a phone conversation at about 4:15 a.m. Jan. 20 between Taylor and a high-ranking Black Guerilla Family gang member, according to charging documents.
"Taylor stated that while at the residence, Demarr Jones (aka "Marty Bass") stated to the others on numerous occasions that the victim 'had to go,' " Sgt. S.B. Cook of the Maryland Police Homicide Unit wrote in charging documents. "When asked who authorized the assassination, Taylor only stated that Demarr Jones had told them that they (Taylor, Spates, Phillips and Desbange) needed to do it, and that it needed to be done by 12 (midnight)."
Fagans was shot multiple times in the apartment complex parking lot at 11:54 p.m., according to police.
During a subsequent phone conversation between Taylor and the same high-ranking BGF gang member on the same date, Taylor allegedly said he, Desbagne, Phillips and Spates drove to the West Road Apartment complex, where the victim was killed and "all four were masked up" during the murder, according to charging documents. He also talked about where the murder weapon might be located, according to police.
Investigators believe the victim routinely associated with members of the BGF gang, according to court documents. Fagans allegedly attended a gang meeting within the weeks leading up to his murder.
"During the meeting, Fagans told BGF members that he refused to make financial dues payments to the BGF," Cook wrote in charging documents.
The victim was also allegedly expecting a child with a woman who had a long-term relationship with a high-ranking BGF gang member, according to police.
"It is known to investigators that sexual contact with the girlfriends or spouses of higher ranking BGF members by lower-ranking associates of the BGF, like Fagans, is strictly forbidden," Cook wrote.
Desbagne and Phillips were taken into custody by police Jan. 14 after investigators linked them to the getaway vehicle used after Fagans was shot and killed.
The owner of the vehicle told investigators he loaned his Mercury Grand Marquis to Desbagne, aka "Homicide," and Philips, aka "K.P.," according to court documents.
City police located the vehicle at 1:57 a.m. Jan. 13, after they received a report about a vehicle fire on Jefferson Street. The car fire was ruled arson by investigators from the State Fire Marshal's Office
