Prosecutor: Suspect in Fairfield shooting to face federal charges

FAIRFIELD — The last time Markell Davis encountered U.S. Marshals was in June in a Walmart parking lot, where they shot him before arresting him because he was a fugitive.

Davis was in court briefly Monday to learn that he will meet U.S. Marshals again soon because state officials are suspending their prosecution of the ex-con since federal prosecutors have opted to launch their own case against Davis.

Deputy District Attorney Matt Olsen shared the news about the federal prosecution before telling Judge Peter B. Foor that his office was dropping attempted murder, assault and drug charges against Davis.

Federal authorities have yet to get an indictment for Davis, who will remain jailed locally on felony probation violation.

At the time Davis, 27, was apprehended, he 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.

    Cool, since he'll actually get meted out justice at the FEDERAL LEVEL. Had he done anything of a Capital nature, at the FEDERAL LEVEL, they are serious about their death sentences unlike Calif.

    Leave him alone???? Are you also of the same PondScum variety that likes to go around having shootouts on public streets, breaking the law, being a fugitive??? If so, IMO, you don't deserve Federal prosecution. You deserve being taken out into a field and shot in the back of your skull. If not CLARIFY YOUR STATEMENT!!!!!!

    Nonchalant, get your facts right. Maybe if you understood the case, you wouldn't say the things you do. It STARTED out as 2 cars shooting at each other. BROAD DAYLIGHT. 5 o'clock in the afternoon on a busy street. One car got away and this Markell , wrecked his car into a house, and jumped out and opened fire MULTIPLE times on a car that was not involved. Wounding my friend, who had nothing to do with anything.

    No the death penalty is not on the table for this Son of Obama. What is on the table is a speedy trial and a sentencing and an incarceration date which would be about 24 months ahead of any rationally predicted trial date in most Soulano County courtrooms. The defendant has the right to a speedy trial--why is it that the People of the State are denied that right?

    Society has a problem with young black males. While Governor Brown and Barack Obama throw billions at illegals for school, college, drivers license and attorneys, we are doing nothing to help. They are being raised without benefit of positive male role models. In most cases, no father in the home. They are not being raised to respect authority and it is getting them killed. I have an idea Governor Brown, why not spend just a little bit of tax dollars on our citizens instead of brown nosing the Mexican president.

    Huckleberry, society does not have a problem with young black males. Society has a problem with young adult black males that have chosen to take a destructive path for whatever reason they did so.
