FAIRFIELD — A Fairfield fugitive shot by federal marshals Thursday in a Walmart parking lot while being apprehended pleaded not guilty Tuesday to weapons charges.
Markell Davis, 27, also 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.
Davis was shot twice in the altercation between the occupants of two cars traveling down Clay Bank Road. Davis was riding with his cousin at the time of the shooting. The cousin, who was also shot and wounded during the dispute, was ordered last week to stand trial on attempted murder and related charges.
Police said Davis’ brother, Cory L. Davis, 33, of Suisun City, was also shot Thursday while trying to flee from officers who were investigating his brother’s shooting. Prosecutors have not yet filed any charges against Cory Davis.
Markell Davis, who is in jail with a $1 million bail, was ordered to return to court April 21 for a probable cause hearing.
