FAIRFIELD — A former Fairfield fugitive shot by federal marshals in a Walmart parking lot while being apprehended on the afternoon of April 3 pleaded not guilty Monday to assaulting a peace officer with a firearm and being an ex-con in possession of a gun and ammunition.

Markell Davis, 27, was arrested at the North Texas Street store where marshals were staked out waiting for him, believing he was in the area. Davis had been on the lam with an outstanding warrant for his suspected role in a Feb. 17 shooting on Clay Bank Road in which Davis was shot and a cousin and an innocent bystander were wounded.

Davis was ordered to return to court for an Aug. 25 probable cause hearing for the Clay Bank Road shooting. After that hearing, a date will be set for a jury trial for the Walmart case.

    He better plead not guilty. He was probably in possesion of a gun and ammunition but the officers followed, assaulted, and shot him he didn't assault them. They gonna throw the whole case charging him with stuff we KNOW for a fact he didn't do. Nobody was hurt except for Markell and his cousin so who got assaulted?

    He had a warrant for drug and gun possesion stemming from a shoot out in which he did not shoot but he was shot and they followed him and his cousin and shot them both within weeks of Markell being shot the initial incident. Nobody is making him the victim just stating facts.

    Nobody said he was a good person. Apparently he's a drug dealer and a gun toter but he hasn't shot anyone or committed a violent crime in fact, he's the victim of violent crime. He's been shot by random guys on the street and followed and shot in the head by the feds within weeks of being shot the 1st time and you question why he's carrying a gun?! Who has he shot? No one. Who's shot him?! Street scum AND the feds like TF? They're throwing this case.
