On March 28, an LMPD officer shot at a suspect who used a van to evade multiple officers. That suspect, Daniel Allen, was found hiding in a home several hours later and taken into custody. Tuesday, 33-year-old Terry Davis Jr. allegedly shot a man several times in an apartment complex parking lot in Okolona.
When officers arrived, they demanded, multiple times over a period of almost 10 minutes, Davis to drop his weapon. Not only did he not obey those commands, but he also charged at two of the officers who had their guns pointed at him. Several minutes into one of the videos, Davis is seen charging toward those officers, at which point he was shot just feet away from several of them.
Davis was shot several times and taken to a hospital, where he was pronounced dead a short time later. “Both of these officers are on administrative reassignment as the Public Integrity Unit investigates this matter,” LMPD Chief Steve Conrad said.
