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.
