Fugitive shot in Walmart parking lot to stand trial

From page A6 | June 11, 2014 |

FAIRFIELD — A former Fairfield fugitive shot by federal marshals in a Walmart parking lot while being apprehended on the afternoon of April 3 was ordered Monday to stand trial on charges of assaulting a peace officer with a firearm and being an ex-con in possession of a gun and ammunition.

Markell Davis, 27, never fired the gun police found in his car after he was shot in the head by a U.S. Marshal who spotted him sitting in a car in the parking lot. A marshal opened fire on Davis as the marshal saw Davis get out of the car with a gun in his hand.

Davis’ attorney said the encounter lasted only a few seconds.

Testimony varied about whether the marshals, part of a fugitive task force, identified themselves before Davis was shot.

After Davis was treated for his minor head injury, he told a detective all he heard before the shooting was “don’t move” and figured it had been police who had shouted out the command.

Davis was ordered to be arraigned on the felony charges June 23. At the arraignment, authorities will schedule a hearing for a second case facing Davis in which he was also shot. Davis has pleaded not guilty to attempted murder, assault and cocaine possession charges arising from a Feb. 17 shooting on Clay Bank Road in which Davis, a cousin and an innocent bystander were wounded.

    This is the first time I've read anything about Davis being in a car. Multiple stories right after the shooting all said he was standing on the sidewalk next to the Walmart. Interesting.

    @Jane Doe-Wasn't it his brother Cory who was in the car, with a child, at the apartments across the street? I thought Markell was running behind the Walmart, down a different street. I was correct, and so were you Jane. Googled it and it said-The gunfire came after investigators with a federal task force tracked down attempted-murder suspect Markell Davis, 27, of Fairfield BEHIND THE WALMART on the 2700 block of North Texas Street at 2:46 p.m., Fairfield police said. Davis had a handgun and was shot in the head and hand by an agent who feared for his and other agents' safety, according to police. Fairfield police responded to the scene to assist and were able to help the agents locate a second suspect, Davis' brother, CORY Davis, 33, of Suisun City, who was also wanted for attempted murder, IN A CAR WITH CHILDREN inside on the same block about 30 minutes later.

    Nothing interesting about it you are listening to the wrong sources, maybe the wrong people, but does it really matter? Another bad guy off the street, too bad the head wound didn't kill him, the Officer should spend more time at the range

    exactly, the gun was in the car. they never seen the gun until after they shot him and got him away from the car. and now they just admitted that they seen him and shot him, they didnt give him any chance to surrender. They shot him behind my house, I heard it all, then looked over my wall into the walmart parking lot and seen the guy on his stomach on the ground, shot in the head. His arms were out and there was no gun in sight. The marshalls threatened me for looking! Pointed their AR's up towards my wall which made me go back into my yard.. Which i think shows they know they were doing things they werent supposed to be doing. They caught him in an area that most cant see as saw it as a chance to take him out. They probably didnt finish him off because of me right there.
