SACRAMENTO, Calif. — Markell Darrell Davis, 31, of Solano County, was sentenced today by United States District Judge Morrison C. England Jr. to 10 years in prison for being a felon in possession of a firearm, U.S. Attorney Phillip A. Talbert announced.
According to court documents, on February 17, 2014, Davis was involved in a shooting in a residential neighborhood in Fairfield. Davis was driving on a residential block when a car pulled alongside him and an occupant of that car fired shots at Davis, then drove away. Davis returned fire with his .40-caliber Glock semi-automatic pistol in the direction of the other car as it drove away. One of the bullets that Davis fired struck and injured a bystander. At the time of the shooting, Davis was a convicted felon who was prohibited by law from possessing a firearm.
This case was the product of an investigation by the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives and the Fairfield Police Department. Assistant U.S. Attorney Brian A. Fogerty prosecuted the case.
