Judge sets next court date as man shot by Fairfield police enters plea

By From page A1 | April 16, 2014

FAIRFIELD — A man shot multiple times by Fairfield police on the afternoon of April 3 pleaded not guilty Tuesday to attempted murder, assault and gun charges.

Cory L. Davis, 33, of Suisun City, who appeared in court in a wheelchair, had been hospitalized for more than a week since the shooting, according to his defense attorney, Thomas Maas.

Davis was shot as he ran from police in the parking lot of a North Texas Street apartment complex. Police spotted him leaving the complex, which is across the street from a shopping center where his younger brother had been shot by U.S. Marshals about 30 minutes earlier. Police said Davis was reaching into his pants when he was shot and said after he was arrested, an illegal gun was recovered.

Davis is accused of firing several shots at another car while driving along Leisure Town Road on the night of Feb. 19.

Bail for Davis was set at $951,000. He was ordered to return to court April 24.

His brother, Markell Davis, 27, of Fairfield, is also in jail. He faces attempted murder, assault and cocaine possession charges arising from a Feb. 17 shooting on Clay Bank Road that left three people wounded, including Markell Davis and an innocent bystander.
