Fugitive Wanted for Dubuque, IA Murder Arrested Monday in Chicago, IL
U.S. Marshals arrested a man in Chicago on Monday who is wanted on a multi-count warrant in Dubuque County, Iowa. 23-year-old Tavon Demarcus Bayloc is a suspect in a shooting near a daycare center in Dubuque in June of this year
Baylock is wanted on several charges including two counts of attempted murder, one count of intimidation with a dangerous weapon with the intent to injure or provoke fear, one count of reckless use of a firearm causing property damage, one count of dominion and control with a firearm or offensive weapon by a felon. Baylock is also wanted in Cook County, Illinois for escape, violation of electronic home monitoring, and a parole violation for a felon in possession of a firearm, and use of a firearm.
Back in July, investigators with the Dubuque Police Department contacted the Northern Iowa Fugitive Task Force requesting assistance in the location and apprehension of Baylock. U.S. Marshals continued working with Dubuque investigators, and in August developed information indicating Baylock was likely no longer residing in Iowa. At this time, U.S. Marshals began coordinating with U.S. Marshal fugitive task forces in Ohio and Illinois.
By November, the Great Lakes Regional Fugitive Task Force narrowed their search to Chicago. In the early morning of November 7, 2022, U.S. Marshals identified Baylock entering a vehicle outside a Chicago residence in the 700 block of Memorial Drive. As U.S. Marshals attempted to apprehend Baylock, he fled striking an officer’s vehicle. Baylock’s vehicle eventually came to a stop in the 1100 block of East Sibley Blvd. after his vehicle became disabled. Baylock was taken into custody without further incident. U.S. Marshals recovered a firearm from the scene, and Baylock was transported to the Cook County Sheriff’s Office in Maybrook, Ill. where he remains in custody facing additional charges.
All suspects are presumed innocent until proven guilty in a court of law.
