One in Custody, Gun Recovered After Hots Fired At Person in Pembroke Township
At approximately 7:30 am this morning (6/8/2022), deputies were summoned to the Pembroke Township area after shots were fired at a motorist. Upon arrival in the area, deputies located a scene and began processing when the suspected shooter, 30 year-old Javonta L Davis, of Pembroke Township, was observed driving a short distance away. As deputies attempted to stop the vehicle Davis was driving, he fled from the area and was stopped a short time later after a subsequent pursuit.
A firearm, matching the description of the one used in the incident, was located in the area.
“This individual’s name has become all too commonly referenced around our office,” said Sheriff Mike Downey. “I am grateful our deputies were able to put the pieces together so quickly in this particular incident to remove such a dangerous person from our community.”
Davis is currently confined at the Jerome Combs Detention Center where he awaits his initial arraignment hearing. He was booked in for Attempted Murder; Aggravated Unlawful Use of a Weapon/Vehicle; Aggravated Discharge of a Firearm/Occupied Vehicle; and, Aggravated Fleeing Police/21+ MPH over the speed limit.
