Suisun man suspected in Vacaville shooting to stand trial

By From page A5 | May 28, 2014

FAIRFIELD — A Suisun City ex-con with an extensive criminal history was ordered Tuesday to stand trial on attempted murder and felony assault charges.

Cory L. Davis, 33, is accused of firing several shots at another car while driving along Leisure Town Road in Vacaville on the morning of Feb. 19.

Police testifying at Davis’ probable cause hearing described witnesses telling them that Davis fired several shots at a car he and a companion were chasing down Leisure Town Road at speeds as fast as 120 mph.

After the shooting, Vacaville police obtained a warrant for Davis’ arrest.

Davis was arrested by Fairfield police on the afternoon of April 3 after he was shot as he ran from police in the parking lot of a North Texas Street apartment complex a short distance from 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, who has pleaded not guilty, was ordered to return to court June 10 to be arraigned on the felony charges.

    I really wish you newspaper reporters and police will get your stories straight and stop making my kids' dad and his brother out to be some kind of monsters. Yall trying to send him to jail off of hearsay. And only one witness, that was not there by the way, is the ONLY one that said Cory was DRIVING the car, NOT SHOOTING OUT THE CAR. YALL WILL ANYTHING FOR A STORY. AND JESS I WISH YOU WILL FIND SOMEONE ELSE's court appt. to sit in besides Cory and Markell Davis' Because there is far worse things happening in Fairfield!! My ex-husband is innocent Jess Sullivan!!

    @Mrs Davis-I know your cory, known him since grade school. Don't even get on here and plead for him-He's been bad since detention and only got worse. Take this from someone that people might consider a career criminal- Needs to sit down for a long long time and figure it out, figure out how you are supposed to act in society and the rules that you must follow. But the main thing he needs to get is "Get up off your butt and go to work instead of trying to hustle forever". You know he loves the street life, so prison is his retirement, free room, board and you get to wear your pajamas all day!

    Daily Republic just LOVES to hold court in their paper.. This is where Folks are deemed GUILTY until proven innocent. They post hearsay as like it's factual details. They run folks pictures and names and ruin peoples lives with details of unfounded charges on anyone who looks guilty. what does guilty look like? BLACK You know how I know? They ran Kelly's picture like she was some kind crime boss & Then daily republic didn't report a peep about her when her charges got DISMISSED! Because she was NOT GUILTY!

    Having charges dismissed is not the same as being found not guilty. Dont worry, none of these charges are getting dissed! & guess what?? since it wasnt taken to trial u better run cuz the prosecutions gonna retry n fry u!

    I'm not certain what charges "mrs davis" claims he is not guilty of or was not found guilty. The article talks about a current case not something else on the 3 pages of cases he has had. Take a look....scroll the pages... of this mama says I'm innocent ... http://courtconnect.solanocourts.com/courtconnect/ck_public_qry_cpty.cp_personcase_details_idx

    @jussayin' You really ought to change your name to 'Jus Bored' or "Jus have no life' or 'Jus wanna be heard'.. You really need to go talk to somebody and get YOUR LIFE! He may or may not be guilty.. He may have 3+ pages of whatever the heck you just conjured up.. But, you are 'Jus Ridiculous' with trying to prove your point.. I mean who has the time to be worried about somebody else's life and a little ol' DR thread! Get it together hunny.. Seriously.. Smh

    'mrs davis' It is difficult to tell how cory is going to be 'jus' fine when he already has 3 pages of cases/charges on the records. Anyone can type SOLANO COURT CONNECT into a search engine... put this perps name in the boxes and submit. Yeah... 20 cases a page ... 3 pages.. hummmm... yeah.. sounds like mama don't know the meaning of "jus fine"

    @Mrs. Davis...WHYYYY would you even post comments. Why not just let his lawyers argue for him if he is innocent. Any smart person would let itbe handled in court. If he is innocent it will come out in court as will if he is guilty. You ranting does more detriment to him than the article. IF...he is innocent evidence presented will prove it and if he wad with you you are a witness and should not be posting anything.PERIOD! Everything you say can be used against you and him. NOT SMART!

    Happens every day, 2 for arrests. Then at the preliminary hearing the police can recite hearsay. You ever hear about Prop 115? Now at the trial things become more complicated. And I don't know why the above comment was originally placed so far down the page. I thought I had this site fingered out.

    They're clearly just a couple of guys who run from cops while in possession of concealed weapons who are in the wrong place at the wrong time constantly. Nice Boys

    Mrs davis were you there no you were not there's two sides to the story. There your ex husband side then there is the cops side. I would go with the cops side their going to tell the truth why wouldn't they tell the truth if they weren't doing anything wrong oh speeding down the street everyone does that even me sometimes, so what. If he your husband wasn't doing anything wrong then why was he arrested. Cause he was stupid and got caught . What he need to do is get a job and keep busy and then he wouldn't be in jail. Bottom line stay clean don't carry guns then the law wouldn't be biting up your behind . He should have stop the car plan and simple he would have gotten caught.

    Mrs Davis So you have first hand knowlwedge, can you tell us what the real story is? He wasn't running from the police? He did not have a concealed weapon? He does not have an extensive criminal history? He is a good husband and father, a law abiding citizen? Has a job like everyone else? The police are just fabricaring this and he has a criminal history because no one understands how lovely of a man he is? And you are happily married to this awesome guy and he provides you and your kids a good, safe, sane life? I wanna hear your story so bad! Do tell!

    @ya'All you should have taken the hook on phonics instead of the Ebonics class to learn how to spell. And with the whit powder.id say this combo points to (salt peter) but that is supposed to decrease your libido so he wouldn't have had a woody. Have a nice evening ya'All.
