2 suspects shot near Fairfield Walmart identified

Two suspects were shot by law enforcement officers near a Walmart in Fairfield Thursday afternoon during a federal task force operation.

The conditions of the suspects are unclear at this time, Fairfield Police Department spokesperson Cleo Mayoral said.

The federal task force, which included the U.S. Marshals, according to Deputy U.S. Marshal Frank Newsom, were looking for suspects wanted for attempted homicide. The Associated Press reported the men were sought for two separate shootings in Fairfield and nearby Vacaville in February. It was not known if those incidents were related.

One suspect, Markell Davis, 27, of Fairfield, was located behind the Walmart at 2701 N. Texas St. Around 2:46 p.m., a U.S. Marshal approached the Davis, who was armed with a handgun, according to authorities. Police said the suspect was shot by the federal officer, but did not say what led to the shooting.

About 30 minutes later, a second suspect, identified as Cory Davis, 33, of Suisun City, was found in an apartment complex across the street by Fairfield police. Davis, who was also armed, police reported, was shot by an officer. Police did not say what led to the shooting.

No officers were injured in the incidents. Both suspects were taken into custody. Fairfield police are not actively looking for suspects, but continue to investigate the shootings.
