District Attorney Jason Williams said, “This is another unfortunate case where our community’s most innocent, a 1-year-old child, was harmed and endangered by senseless gun violence. Justice was delivered with this conviction for the victim and the people of New Orleans. To be clear, this conviction via guilty plea was not the result of an agreement with the State. The overwhelming evidence in this case coupled with the diligent and meticulous trial preparation of ADA Mark Nguyen left Mr. Davis with no choice but to plead guilty as charged to his own reckless and violent actions. This conviction is the direct result of this office’s hard work and commitment to securing justice for our victims.”
According to NOPD reports, the defendant shot his 1-year-old son through a car window following a domestic dispute with his girlfriend. Sentencing will take place on September 8th, 2023.
