More details are coming out about an officer involved shooting that occurred in Fairfield. Police say that both men that were shot yesterday were brothers wanted on warrants for two seperate shootings.
27-year-old Markell Davis was spotted in a car pulling into the parking lot of the Walmart on N. Texas Street by a multi-agency taskforce. As officers were attempting to take Davis into custody, officers noticed he was armed. One of them opened fire striking Davis in the head and the hand. He's been treated for non-life-threatening injuries.
While at the Walmart, the taskforce was notified that another wanted felon was in the area. 33-year-old Cory Davis was spotted getting in and out of several vehicles in the apartment story across the street from the Walmart. When he was confronted by officers, he attempted to flee by running through the complex. Officers also noticed that Davis was reaching into his waistband. A Fairfield officer fired and struck Davis in the upper right leg.
While searching for the Davis brothers, narcotics officers discovered that their sister, 30-year-old Kelly Davis, was selling drugs out of her apartment in the same complex.
A search revealed narcotics, ammunition, and magazines for a handgun similar to the one possessed by Markell Davis.
